I know what they are doing.

New kernel 2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.i686 in the update packages last night.
My web camera works again! YEA! YEA! YEA!  First my 64 bit machine got
it's update and the camera started working again.  Then the 32 bit
machine got it's update later in the evening and the camera started
working again there too.

Thank you to all the CentOS packagers for all the great work that you do.

It's sad that it took almost three months for this to get fixed.
