Have you tried 2.6.32 kernel in Gentoo? In case yes, and if webcam works
in 2.6.32 and fails in 2.6.34, the best way to resolve this issue is to
find commit that broke it. Please, download sources with git and check
that webcam really works with 2.6.32 and fails with 2.6.34. After that
go through bisect (`git help bisect` or google has a good explanation on
how to do that) to find excact commit that broke webcam. Try to apply
that commit and revert it to check that webcam really works before and
fails after. After that just mail to authors of commit and subsystem
maintainers (you can find them in /usr/src/linux/MAINTAINERS file. After
fix found, please, open bug report so we could apply fix in Gentoo as
soon as possible.
