This is not a libv4l issue, but rather a driver issue. Please mail:
Jean-Francois Moine <moinejf@free.fr> (who is the upstream gspca maintainer) about this, he is the one who can help you the best. Feel free to add me to the CC.

Closing this as being handled upstream, as there is not much we can do at the Fedora side here.
