Bug Description

Under Intrepid, I can't use anymore my Zicplay VX6 Webcam, based on a Sonix chipset (id 11), using 2.6.27-10-generic kernel (and older ones from the 2.6.27 series). It was not working perfectly on Hardy, but it was working (I got a picture where I can see me). Under Intrepid, I can't use it at all. It is recognised (see dmesg extract following) but in cheese I got a test pattern, and in mplayer a green picture with lots of chirps (like if I read a damaged video tape).

Here is dmesg output:
