Philips Webcam

 After the success at using the pwc drivers for my existing webcam I decided to base my next webcam purchase upon the list of models it supported.

 Looking through amazon to add a model to my wishlist I found the PCVC720 model which is supported either by the PWC drivers or the OV511 drivers. (Apparently there are two flavours of this model).

 So I added it to the list, and waited for my lovely friend to pay for it :)

 When it turned up I was pleased to see that it's the newer model, as supported by PWC.

 Unfortunately when I tried to use it I soon discovered that it was not supported. Oops.

 Not wanting to disapoint my lady friend who was expecting to see me up close and personal .. I looked over the source, and came up with the following patch to make it run.

 Minor change I know .. but I was pleased - I only got one kernel panic whilst making changes!
