I didn't explain it properly. Their native firmware is based on uC/OS-II,
and they've obviously written all the required drivers for this OS. Having
this source for reference helps a lot in writing the linux drivers.

1- Yes, it's fun, and people's appreciation of my work is a very nice

2- I did already with the A320.

3- They're willing to pay for it.

if they just provide info I'll be glad to develop for this machine, but I'll
dedicate time as I see fit, or quit it altogether if some other prioritary
stuff takes up all my time. If they're paying for it and the price is right,
there will be an schedule and commitment to completion.
