Even if the reverse engineered component was deemed unacceptable, I'd like to
see the (other) differences between the two drivers merged ASAP. AFAIK, the
10.x pwc driver supports the v4l2 API which is useful, and as you mentioned
actually works on more camera (the 9.x versions just spam errors to dmesg on
my PWC740K).
