Hmmm... I think I know where that comes from. The iSight report a vendor
subclass in the interface descriptors (you already noticed the issue with
I'm not happy with that. The more I clean the driver, the more iSight specific
quirks will be needed. I thought about writing an open-source firmware
replacement that would be UVC compatible. That turned out to be difficult as
the webcam doesn't have the necessary hardware to generate a UVC-compatible
isochronous data stream.
Patching the iSight firmware to report the right interface subclasses would be
easy, but we can't make sure it won't have any side effect. Whatever
direction we take, a dedicated iSight maintainer might be needed, as I'll
probably break other things in the future (not intentionally of course :-)).
