Sorry Florian,

The defect is not fixed.
It does not work in newer versions.
It works in older revision (tested on 16927)
So, it can be a kernel bug (in the newer kernel)

Had the same problem, tested with BackFire (10.03-beta, r19944).
Solution for me was to do
opkg install kmod-video-uvc kmod-i2c-core kmod-input-core

perhaps the kmod-video-uvc package should depend on kmod-i2c-core and kmod-input-core?
