Excuse me, my English is not quite well, I do not understand what you
said, I guess your meaning is "not familiar with how to build and test
upstream kernel" If what I guess is incorrect, please let me know.

There are some books or some related web links for building and test
kernel, they are not quite difficult to get (please google search).

I guess, it is necessary to reference these information and construct
related develop environments to support what you want to do next.

By the way, excuse me, today I have to do some other things firstly, so
maybe my next email reply will be late (may tomorrow, or the day after
