Add Terratec Camera Usbid 0x04fc:0x504a but the camera work with the spca504b command :)

20/05/2004
FIX problem with 2.6.x kernel as usb_set_interface break the usb_submit_urb for the Clicksmart310 spca500 camera.That way the camera should start in any case.
Spcaview can now probe the spca5xx camera and display on the console the setting
available in size and palette

17/05/2004
FIX Oops with spca500_synch310() on open.Seem the alternate setting change need for the clicksmart 310 cause the problem when init_source() initialize the cam

16/05/2004
Add a Bridge list
VIDIOCGCAP return in field name the camera name know in Clist
VIDIOCGCHAN return in field name the bridge know in bridge list
These change allow userspace apps to probe the spca5xx camera.
spca500 add a request to find what chip sensor is available the i2c chip address should appears in the syslog output
Add Clicksmart310 UsbId 0x046d:0x0900 spca500 and HDCS1020 from Agilent .
this camera work in 352x288 and sometimes 176x144
If the chips did not start close or Kill video grabber apps replug the cam then restart that should work.
As i can see with my Ellysis usb analyser windoze driver on probe start a process to ping the cam every 300ms .

16/04/2004
Add a struct pictparam to the decoder. all picture setting is carried to the decoder that way
Initial data are set by module parameters :
(gamma, force_rgb, OffsetRed, OffsetBlue, OffsetGreen, Gain Red, Gain Blue, and Gain Green)
Those parameters will change soon trought sysfs feature :)
Spcatools will be helping to choose the good setting
ATM rgb 16 rgb 24 and rgb 32 are implemented for all cameras

Rewrite spca506 SAA7113 code for the usb grabber, WORKS!! fine now :)
Allow size to change between 160x120 to 640x480 640x480 need to be interpolate
from 640x240 as the windoze driver do :)
Allow norme and channel in the VIDIOCSCHAN ioctl norme should be :
VIDEO_MODE_PAL, VIDEO_MODE_SECAM, VIDEO_MODE_NTSC NTSC need to be tested
i don't own any camera with that feature
Channel should be [0..3] for CBVS composite input [6..9] for S-VIDEO input

The spca500 from FamilyCam and pocket DV also i think clicksmart510 need to initialise with the size set to 640x480 and the corresponding usb pipe set to 1023.Unfortunately our driver start with the smallest one.I have made a change to allow these cams to work with all size 640x480 320x240 and 176x144 the large size auto init without unplug and replug the cam the others need that:( Need more test for the pocketDV owner.Thanks Denis Pitzalis who give me a Familycam for testing
Add the same init code for the Intel Cam CS630 spca500a. Thanks Rob Roschewsk for testing.

16/11/2003
FIX The Bug with the Suse kernel on close function perhaps that will work with Mandrake preempt kernel
Some cleanup

15/11/2003
Schedule a tasklet in the interrupt handler that allow to work with full size, full frame rate
These features are implemented for the rawjpeg cams ATM spca500a spca504a spca504b spca533a

11/11/2003
All the crop feature are now implemented and work fine for the spca504a and spca504b camera the spca533a work fine in 320x240 194x144 176x144 the others are not implemented ATM I hope this code have not break the others cams.If you got some problem or please feedback to
mxhaard@magic.fr
The hint message have move to "SPCA5XX Usb Camera" to allow all the palettes working on gnomemeeting. Thanks to Damien Sandras and Fabrice (Gnomemeeting Team) for help and testing the YUV420P feature. A preliminary code to drop frame is also implemented this drop occurs when the userspace ask for RGB in full size 640x480 like "gqcam".
(That is not really a good idea, we want 18.43Mb/s to puch a whole frame in RGB24 and the kernel didn't like that:) ) a better idea is to use yuv420p with spcaview that need only 9.21 Mb/s with the same quality.
IMHO the RGB feature didn't have a place in a Linux kernel:) This module need a good processor to work fine and is optimize for i686 familly ( PIV and Athlon)

04/11/2003
FIX Read Function when yuv420p and jpeg palette are asked
Work on Gnomemeeting with Damien Sandras to FIX yuv420p palette usage

Try to get best with oprofile and qprof profilers
