Did you get this when you 'lsmod|grep -i uvc'?

[root@fedora-l OpenSource]# lsmod|grep -i uvc
uvcvideo               76346  0
videobuf2_core         31894  1 uvcvideo
videodev              106837  2 uvcvideo,videobuf2_core
media                  20444  2 uvcvideo,videodev
videobuf2_vmalloc      12967  1 uvcvideo

What do you get when you 'cat /var/log/messages|grep -i 046d' ?
