Well, I definitely must be doing something wrong... I just took a look a
the patch, and it actually patches files that do not have anything to do
with what I compiled. In fact, there is another module called
"quickcam_messenger", but it is not loaded when the camera is plugged
in. Even if I load it manually before, when I plug in the camera, the
"quickcam" module is loaded.

 I do not know how to prevent this loading of the quickcam module, and I
do not know if the quickcam_messenger alone would work...

Compiling (after patching):
1$ make drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.ko

 CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/linux/utsrelease.h
  CALL    scripts/checksyscalls.sh
  CC [M]  drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.o
  MODPOST 2 modules
  CC      drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.mod.o
  LD [M]  drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.ko

and installing:
2$ cp drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.ko /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/kernel/drivers/media/video/usbvideo/quickcam_messenger.ko

doesn't seem to make a difference.
