there's been quite some emailing going back and forth. I'll try
to reply in the LIFO order, but remind me (in private) if I
miss anything.

  This seems to be clean. M?ns, I presume it'll be ok for me
to apply this portion in a single transaction with the other one?

   Ok, I do have one last question here, though. It is 
minor nit, but if anybody besides me cares we might as well
take care of it. So, here's the deal: what you currently have
in your patch is fine and readable, but personally I really
dislike #if[def] sections which are longer than just a couple
of lines. On top of that, one would hope that support for 
libdc1394 v. 1 is going to be dropped sometime in the future.
Hence, I'd rather have this (in skeletal form):

   #if ENABLE_LIBDC1394_2
   #include <dc1394/dc1394.h>
   #elif ENABLE_LIBDC1394_1
   #include <libraw1394/raw1394.h>
   #include <libdc1394/dc1394_control.h>
   #define DC1394_VIDEO_MODE_320x240_YUV422 MODE_320x240_YUV42
   #define DC1394_FRAME_RATE_1_875 FRAME_RATE_1_875
   #endif /* ENABLE_LIBDC1394_1 */
   static inline int dc_1394_read_header_common(...)

   static int dc1394_v1_read_header(...)

   static int dc1394_v2_read_header(...)

   #if ENABLE_LIBDC1394_1
   AVInputFormat libdc1394_demuxer = {
    .name           = "libdc1394",
    .long_name      = "dc1394 v1 A/V grab",
    .priv_data_size = sizeof(struct dc1394_data),
    .read_header    = dc1394_v1_read_header,
    .read_packet    = dc1394_v1_read_packet,
    .read_close     = dc1394_v1_close,
    .flags          = AVFMT_NOFILE
   #elif ENABLE_LIBDC1394_2
   AVInputFormat libdc1394_demuxer = {
    .name           = "libdc1394",
    .long_name      = "dc1394 v2 A/V grab",
    .priv_data_size = sizeof(struct dc1394_data),
    .read_header    = dc1394_v2_read_header,
    .read_packet    = dc1394_v2_read_packet,
    .read_close     = dc1394_v2_close,
    .flags          = AVFMT_NOFILE

 Cool. Thanks for the explanation.

  Got it.

  Well, beyond the question above and somebody for whom English is a 
mother tongue looking over the output messages, I believe this patch
is now ok to be included. Good work!
