Hi Georg.

Since there currently isn't v4l looback driver in mainline kernel, I suggest you 
take part on this ongoing discussion at linux-media mailing list: 
http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-media@vger.kernel.org/msg04362.html

As you can see, Mauro was going to add that loopback driver on v4l as 
out-of-tree driver. For end-user it would be a lot easier if your loopback 
implementation would be integrated on that driver and added to upstream kernel 
tree :)

Regards,
Matti
