I did some pio-reading tests and I could read a single frame but the
port was not switched back correctly, at least not for my device (a
CPiA based webcam). In any case, the block-read interface is not
suitable for my purpose. A webcam delivers a stream of indefinite
length (due to compression). The end-of-stream is a data pattern in the
stream. The current read-functions do ieee-mode switching after reading
blocks which must not happen for the webcam. So I see no way to
implement streaming read with the current interface. I will try to show
some working code that implements what I need.
AFAIK, there is no dma-read code in the current 2.3.x-kernels.
