I certainly don't have one, nor are there likely to be many in circulation, 
but maybe there are some people assisting Luke who have some experience with 
them. Without reviewing the previous threads, I can't give you any quick and/
or reliable answers to your questions.

However, I did summarise the state of certain things on the wiki at one point:

You could probably make a wiki page on the rhombus-tech site with your notes, 
maybe linking to it from the one mentioned above.

One thing I can imagine is that some kernel issues are likely to be much 
easier than when Luke was trying to get a kernel together, mostly because 
quite a bit of mainlining has since taken place, although I can't guarantee 
that the notorious Linux 4.7 bug mentioned on that page is still there or not.

Still, it will be interesting to follow your investigations.
