I've been writing a parport driver for a QuickCam VC camera and with the recent
release of the 2.4.0 kernel I've noticed that the ASCII model name returned is
incomplete. I do remember a short discussion on this listserv which this was
discussed briefly but I didn't think any changes were decided upon.
The problem lies in the fact that due to the latest model probe routines there
are now 2 devices that come up with the same model while in fact they are not
the same. I was wondering if a "kinder gentler" space strip routine could be
implimented as opposed to the "truncate at space" algorithim that is currently
in the kernel.
Would this be an acceptable alternative? If I present a patch for inspection
would there be any interest?
