I've checked with a slightly earlier version of the patch with
skype-,1, 8.2-stable/amd64 from just after 8.2-release and a
Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 (uvc) and video works nicely.  The mike in
the webcam is more problematic - snd_uaudio recognizes it but trying
to use it with Skype gave me:
pcm4: chn_read(): pcm4:virtual:dsp4.vr0: record interrupt timeout, channel dead
(I haven't looked into that further).

On a related topic, I've found a set of AF9035 patches at
that look like they should apply cleanly to webcamd - I haven't
had a chance to actually try them yet.
