Generally, Dan solves the problem before the rest of us get around to asking

almost everything I hoped to contribute so far was already done, so I wrote a
HOWTO instead.

Start by searching the mailing list archives at:

Then, ask on the list if anyone else has already done it, or is interested in
doing it, and see what response you get. If it hasn't been done yet, try all
the links in the HOWTO to see if it's been ported to a similar board.
