Does V4L2 totally support PWC cameras' special options ?

I ask because V4L1 has an extension for it, and V4L2 doesn't, so, I was 
wondering whether V4L2 could cover all of PWC's options.

If not, then it's a good idea to use pdp_v4l.c in order to get to special 
features of those cams. (Though that doesn't work with most recent 
kernels... I just have to not upgrade it)
