There may not be so many who feel confident they could do it in the
first place. Integration demands a great amount of experience, even
if the actual task may be fairly simple. It's all about making the
right choices at the crossroads, the ones that doesn't lead you into

Is this something you plan to evolve ?
By the way, in order to clear some of the obstacles on the kernel
side, I put together a basic system from packages. It's *very*
simple, just a proof of concept that boots into initramfs and gives
you a busybox shell on serial and USB serial gadget.
The interesting bit is the kernel configuration. In order to build
a kernel with it, you need the CONFIG_PM and PWM config dependency
patches I've sent yesterday.

Hmm, that would be bad :-( However, I do wonder what the relative
popularity of the distributions is.
