Update (Wed Oct 29 20:47:39 CET 2008): Marcus has just reported that two devices are already on the way. Big thanks to the donors and for all those that offered to help!

Please read on for Marcus' mail:

Hi Folks,

We want to add USB BULK support for UVC devices in our uvideo(4)
driver.  There are not that many UVC devices around which do
BULK transfers, but the advantage would be that BULK transfers are
working a bit more stable than our current ISOC implementation
and we could do some further testing.

One device which I know for sure that has a built-in BULK cabable
device is the EeePC 701.  If somebody would be willing to donate
such a device to me, please contact me off-list.

    Is this just the 701, or will other Asus EEE models benefit from this work?
