Yes I have attended the BoF on the driver.

I think the problem is more involved than just setting up target and include dirs - I think the target database should have OS specific information too (which flags are required per OS etc, so a distro maintainer can change whatever he may need at package time without patching the source).

Would it be possible for you to hold off your patch for a week or so until mine is ready and can be used as a base?

That's fine with me.
