That would be great, yes.

Indeed, yes. This path has been untested before aswell.

I don't think that's necessary. It might be worth noting to the commit
messages which patches you made because there was something not working
and which patches you made because the standard was not correctly

Use different consoles for debug messages and RATP. During development
we used a board with two serial ports, but you could also use network
console as an alternative console.
