Ok, it seems to need some basic work to merely build properly on
"modern" kernel versions.

So, how should we do this if I want to move it into staging? Can I just
take a snapshot of what you have in this repo, move it in-kernel, fix
the build errors and apply that patch (as your contribution of course)?

Then future development can go off of the in-kernel version? Or do you
plan to keep this git tree active somehow?
