As you are using a _HEAVILY_ modified 4.9 kernel release, you are going
to have to get support from the vendor that provided you with this
kernel, as they are the only ones that really know what is in there,
_AND_ you are already paying them for that support.  So take advantage
of it :)

good luck!
