Hmm... It seems that those drivers are without any current maintainer.
At least, from my research, I didn't noticed any patch from a maintainer
at 2.6 git tree.

Anyway, let's copy both Dmitri and Simon.

I dunno who were the authors for ibmcam and usbvideo.

I was also wondering if anyone is working on converting usbvideo to
v4l2. There's also a warning message from videodev that is triggered
by usbvideo's template:

videodev does:
357 #if 1 /* needed until all drivers are fixed */
358 if (!vfd->release)
359 printk(KERN_WARNING "videodev: \"%s\" has no
release callback. "
360 "Please fix your driver for proper sysfs
support, see "
361 "\n";, vfd->name);
362 #endif

usbvideo does:
958 static const struct video_device usbvideo_template = {
959 .owner = THIS_MODULE,
960 .type = VID_TYPE_CAPTURE,
961 .hardware = VID_HARDWARE_CPIA,
962 .fops = &usbvideo_fops,
963 };

and so videodev doesn't find .release and complains.
