If you want prompt responses, you can help yourself by writing proper
commit logs that don't assume everyone has the exact same context in
their mind that you have on your specific problem.

Start with a clear problem statement that covers the symptoms.

"When I connect device type ABC to host XYZ, I can't do foobar,
because I get <describe symptoms here>"

Then describe the technical "why" it happens, showing that you
understand what is going on.

"This happens because device types ABC are excluded from being
treated/processed with <functions/code/whatever>"

Finally describe what your chosen fix is and why it is the best possible
choice to fix things, with the least risk of side effects.

"We can add type ABC to class foobar, since it supports all the
basic functions of class XYZ and works transparently without gaps."

Additional details like command line output are good, but you shouldn't
fill the commit log with nothing but them. Be concise when adding
captured output - only show what needs to be shown.

Finally, don't send a "ping" only a couple days after your original
send. Speaking for myself, if someone does that to me, they immediately
go to the end of my queue. Maintainers are busy. Be patient and
polite and write good commit logs and things will probably go a lot
better for you.
