Linux and the Vaio TZ webcam

Just letting you know: I was able of making the webcam work as a standard V4L device (using both version 1 & 2 V4L APIs) using the r5u870 driver. I had to use the patched version of the driver which can be found at the Ubuntu Forums, with my own rework of the ebuild attached to bug #176824. Now the only remaining “big” issues are the SD card reader and stable ACPI sleep. Yikes!
