USB camera not recognized at boot

I use a webcam that i need to unplug, then plug in in order to be used.
That is annoying as it works well and i need it to be operative at boot because i have no physical access to this machine.
It is a ov51x-jpeg camera.

Can you please post the relevant portions of dmesg from both boot and re-plug, as well as any relevant portions of the boot log? Are you sure the correct kernel modules are loaded at boot?
