I agree. I just built it again today against 2.6.11-1-686-smp (after
using it for several months against 2.6.10-1-686-smp).
I talked to the developer about getting it in the kernel, but he doesn't
seem to care. If you want I would be willing to help get some people
together to submit it into the main kernel sources.
For now, I think it would be best to get it put together as a patch for
the debian-kernel team so it will automagically get built for each new
2.6.x kernel. Otherwise, we would have to package it up for each kernel
as a seperate patch.
Have you already made it into such a patch for the debian kernel
sources? If not, I'd be happy to help with that also.
The driver works great on the built in z-micro USB camera on my portable.
