No error message in the kernel log and a decent picture
Just tried the webcam on my old PC (using an old Fedora version) and there also the picture is garbage. So, it looks like the webcam hardware is broken.
The kernel error message does not occur there, that seems to be an unrelated driver problem/feature. However since my HW appears to be broken, I can test if this is a problem or not.
