This page mentions 046d:0920, but as said on


the driver has been merged into the spca5xx driver (which is the
one I'm using). The author/maintainer of this driver told me that
the endianness problem occurred only with 2.6.11 kernels (where
a new macro related to the endianness was added) and he sent me
a preversion, which worked (but the quality of the image is very
bad -- due to the camera chipset).

I don't know. There's an ITP bug for spca5xx (bug 304819), but
I assume that this would be the source only. I wonder if binary
packages for such kernel modules could be built each time an
official kernel-image-* package is built.
