Are those patches published somewhere (and what are they for)?

As far as I can tell that script must be run from within an already 
existing Alpine Linux install. Am I guessing correctly that the package 
linux-elm contains the kernel image? I'd rather try and extract the 
kernel + modules only as I have no intention to move away from Debian.

A list of options that must be enabled in the kernel for the R13, as 
well instructions for building the image to be flashed to the kernel 
partition would also be very helpful.

With these we might be able to get full support for the R13 in the 
Debian kernel and flash-kernel.

Kind regards,
