as matju has stated several times (in this thread), all drivers that 
speak v4l (aka: v4l1) are supported by gridflow.
all drivers that only speak v4l2 are not natively supported by gf.
however (as said before) you can use libv4l to add v4l2 support to v4l1 
applications at runtime.

other than that, it is hard to make any anwers (as matju has pointed 
out): gf (and any other video-application) does not directly communicate 
with a driver (pwc, qc-usb,...) but with a middleware (the v4l*-protocol).
