I pick this driver from out of tree drivers and driver for 2.6 kernel
already exist but it's not in kernel tree.
Code working with 2.6 kernel can be found at
http://nw802.sourceforge.net/news.html  but very infrequently updated.
Nevertheless support many webcams with
NX800 chipset and it would be good to have it in main tree. It needs
some small modifications and code cleanup.

Curious is that i type mail to author of driver to ask him for check
if driver will work after modifications
and he response that he stops development because he broke his camera
with NW chipset during development :)

So it make sense to ask someone for help or should I stop it in this phase?
