I was really trying to see what kind of quickcam it thinks I have to see it if it would be compatible with free software. After doing what you said, I checked the new_id  file but it has no read permissions even to root, so unless I change the permissions. I remember reading that root should be able to read anything even it has no read permissions, but that didn't work.
To answer your question, the first command gives me over ten thousand lines.
I have attached dmesg_file. I am using 0.9-1 frugalware.
