Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Could we have the module "tca8418_keypad" enabled in the Debian armmp kernel? 

Currently the NTC CHIP board is listed as "Stable untested" on

I'm troubleshooting some small issues running Bookworm with the NTC PocketCHIP 
carrier board that was commonly distributed along with the CHIP. The PocketCHIP 
board adds battery, screen and keyboard peripherals to the CHIP similar to a 
Beaglebone cape or Pi hat.

The PocketCHIP keyboard is supported by the tca8418_keypad module. Currently it 
is not enabled in the armmp kernel configuration:

root@djubre:~# grep TCA8418 /boot/config-6.1.0-11-armmp
# CONFIG_KEYBOARD_TCA8418 is not set

If we had this module enabled we would have complete out-of-the-box support for 
all of the PocketCHIP's hardware from Bookworm onwards.

The following output is from a PocketCHIP R8 system running the latest 
linux-image-armmp tainted by building the tca8418_keypad module manually to 
confirm it works:
