OK, it actually does turn on.
What I've discovered is that the webcam needs some short time to "warm up".
I've modified pwcview to ignore a few initial v4l1_read error and everything is
fine now.  It would be better, of course, if the driver internally handled these
couple of initial frames, but my workaround is OK for me too.
