Follow up to my earlier post,

I've only been following conversations in this mail list peripherally
because most of my recent work hasn't been on ARM hardware, but it's
my impression that current openSUSE Factory/RPi efforts have been
based on an openSUSE kernel.

I have since found that Raspberry Pi is developing their own kernel,
which at once also answers some oddly unique things I've read about
the raspbian image

So, it seems that no... it seems that openSUSE TW/ARM for RPi is not
using the same kernel and therefor almost certainly won't have the
essential kernel module I want.

I'm curious whether anyone has considered looking into grafting the
RPi kernel(with its own boot) with TW ARM Userland?
Or, for that matter similarly grafting openSUSE on to any other boot/kernels?

I might also spend a little (not much) time looking at whether the
kernel module I want can be implemented in the openSUSE ARM kernel.
The ability to run in OTG mode seems like an important capability no
matter the hardware platform (which is likely missing in a mainline
