dmesg output with uvcvideo tracing

Description of problem:
I'm using a Creative Live! Cam Optia AF (VF0560). During the Fedora 22 cycle, the device stopped working. I assumed it was a hardware failure, but it turned out that the device was fully functional when using a Fedora 22 Live USB.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tested multiple kernel versions in an attempt to locate when the regression appeared. The device was working fine up to kernel-4.1.6-201.fc22.x86_64. The issue first appeared in kernel-4.1.7-200.fc22.x86_64 and is present in kernel-4.2.6-201.fc22.x86_64.

How reproducible:
Almost always. Sometimes, the device might work right after plugging it in, but only once. See the attached dmesg output.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Cheese to record video.
2. Use Sound Recorder to record audio.

Actual results:
LED turns on but video is black and audio is nothing but noise.

Additional info:
I'm unsure if this issue is related to bug #739448. The device was working fine for me in Fedora 20 and 21.

Attached with this bug is the output of dmesg with tracing enabled for uvcvideo. I performed the following actions:
1. Plug in the device.
2. Launch Cheese. The device was working. Quit Cheese.
3. Launch Cheese again. This time, video was black. Quit Cheese.
Comment 1 Dimitrios Christidis 2016-01-25 19:01:35 EST
I performed a git bisect on the vanilla kernel. The device is still nonfunctional in 4.5.0-rc1.
