Comment(by dsd):

 Heh, weird code. It tries to dlopen libv4l2 if it cannot be found.
 However, the Makefile links the resultant plugin against libv4l2, so if
 libv4l2 could not be found then the code would crash before running in the
 first place.

 I'd push for the solution of dropping dlopen and just calling v4l2_open()
 and friends directly.
