Help adding CIFS support to kernels?
Often I find myself really liking a particular kernel for a particular device. The common problem I have found is that no CIFS support is added to the kernel.
I have donated to several kernel devs. I don't expect anything from them, I just wanted to show my appreciation.
However, usually my CIFS inquiries go unnoticed.
I would like to add CIFS support to other people's kernels for my personal use on my device.
I presume I will have to decompile and recompile kernels in the process?
Here is the specific case that I have :
Phone - Verizon Galaxy Note 2
ROM - Beans build 22 (Touchwiz)
Kernel - Perseus 36
I would like to use Imnuts' PBJ kernel. It doesn't support CIFS, whereas Perseus does.
So in theory I could extract the CIFS modules and inject them into PBJ? Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. I would also be willing to donate to someone willing to build one for me (mods, let me know if that isn't cool to mention. ) I don't have a Linux box or the current means of acquiring a Linux box until early next year. I am curious if this can be done on Windows 7?
