I need VIDEO_OV5648 for webcam support to scan qr codes. It was included in kernel 5.12 according this post:

I use Porteus Kiosk 5.4.0 which runs on kernel 5.15 but this driver is not included. How do I get the driver into the system?

Custom build is the only option when kernel recompilation is required.
