Hi all !

The gscpa_ov519 module should be the final one. It is supported by the linux kernel and will decompress JPEG too.

The remaining bit is to fix applications to use the libv4l [1] library instead of directly manipulating the device. This library is provided by the linux video kernel team and will perfrom all sort of conversions that should hopefully fix a *lot* of broken applications and drivers.

Integration with the various applications should really be easy, since the library is designed to wrap around the original calls, only you need to prefix them with v4l_ or v4l2_, see libv4l{1,2}.h

Patches for various popular applications are also available.
