Re: [RFC PATCH 3/3] [media] gspca - main: implement vidioc_g_ext_ctrls and vidioc_s_ext_ctrls



Hi Antonio,

My apologies for the late review, I missed this the first time around.

Since I am the 'control guy' :-) I thought I should give my view on this.
And that is the real long-term approach to implementing extended controls
in gspca is to add support in gspca for the control framework (see
Documentation/video4linux/v4l2-controls.txt). That will probably simplify
control handling in gspca anyway. The main problem is how to do it in such
a manner that we can convert gspca drivers to the control framework one by
one.

I am inclined to NACK code that adds a driver-specific extended control
implementation instead of going to the control framework because I know
from painful personal experience that it is very hard to get it right.

I might have some time (no guarantees yet) to help with this. It would
certainly be interesting to add support for the control framework in the
gspca core. Hmm, perhaps that's a job for the weekend...

Regards,

	Hans
