No worries. I figured that was a possibility after your comments.
I figured running sparse and trying to fix errors in staging could be a
good starting point, but apparently it is not (I don't think I have any
of the exotic hardware in staging). Is there anywhere else I could get
started? Or are there other errors from sparse which are less likely to
be complex to check and hence require hardware to test the changes?

Cheers,
