Is there any previous work done with this combination? Ubuntu on Gumstix is running (GNU/Linux 2.6.36 armv7l). Also would the ROS ucv_camera package be useful for camera access or maybe there are some other better options?

Ubuntu 11.04 can be made to work with Gumstix Caspa camera by using Angstrom kernel 2.6.34. I build rootfs /dev/sdb2 part of SD card by using rootstock utility following these instructions:

And for /dev/sdb1 I used Caspa camera compatible set of uImage, u-boot and MLO. Make sure you have mt9v032.ko driver at /lib/modules/2.6.34/kernel/drivers/media/video folder. Good third party webpage for overall info related gumstix

Usable command to check which modules you have installed in kernel is lsmod.
