My first goal is to submit a patch for the pinball board to the RPi Foundation's kernel (as a lot of distributions use this kernel)
and then submit a version to the upstream kernel (because at the end everybody should use the upstream kernel).
I understand that the patch intended to the RPi Foundation's kernel is not best solution but from a practical point of view i think it can be
interesting for the end users.
Thanks for your comments.
