The usage of the obsolete V4L API is a problem since we aren't accepting any
drivers with the old API for a long time, doing large efforts to convert the
few remaining ones to V4L2 API.

This probably means also that they are not using the current V4L framework. Are
they already somewhere at the staging tree?
