Great news and great work!

I guess I can wait until you post the patches, but I thought about one
thing. When browsing the Android git tree, I see there are quite a bit
of non hardware-related patches, e.g., android_logger¸ android_alarm,
ashmem etc. Are these strictly needed for Android to work and will
these therefore also get posted here?
