Your effort toward an RT framegrabbing driver interface is very welcome,
and I hope it can lay the ground for further work in this domain, also
via different media like FireWire or USB.

Just one issue remains as you already apologised for: this code needs a
/little/ bit cleanup. I tried to get an impression by browsing through
it, but it's fairly hard to read even for someone who thinks to know
what to look for. Too much experimental or dead code.

Maybe, once time permits, you can start the cleanup by reducing the
driver to a level that only leaves the removed HW access as markers,
killing everything that is not used right now in your real driver.
