Louis-Paul, All,

Oh, no, no! The series is not applied to master at all!

I've just provided some feedback while trying your patches. The original
patches from 20 onward have not been applied...

I'd like to, please.

Thomas P. and I are always logged in on IRC. I look from ~07:30+0200 to
~22:00+0200, and Thomas has similar presence. Not sure about Andreas and
Peter, though...

I know this can be a lot of work, and that people have a life outside of
Buildroot (and even outside of computers, amazing! ;-] ), but having
people, like you, who understand what is going on, and are interested in
fixing the issue, is the only way to make progress on such topics.

By the way, we're having a virtual developper day next Monday,
2020-07-27, the whole day. If you are willing to join:
