Hence Huang has only copied so-called "header file contents", I think
this should be fine. I've anyhow added a notice about that. I'll clear
any issues directly with Greg Kroah-Hartman. The GPLv2 is clear that
such contents is so-called "unrestricted". Se chapter 5.

Regarding the parts re-used from existing FreeBSD input drivers, this is
the way we should write drivers, by trying to re-use existing well
written and working device drivers. What Huang has done is perfectly
fine with with me.




If the Linux guys think this is a big problem, we can support this hardware through /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd, quite easily. Although a kernel driver would be best for this type of device.

Thank you!
