Yes, patching the kernel is a workaround, not the solution. The kernel
has changed its interface for a reason and linux libNDOFdev must go with
it (and /has/ already gone with it. We just need to upgrade to Jan's
latest version, 0.3.)

The upgrade could easily be done by one of us community devs if the 3p-*
repository to create the current linux libndofdev autobuild installable
would be around. Note that the already published
https://bitbucket.org/lindenlab/3p-libndofdev is a different library
(the one for Mac and Windows by 3DConnexions, now hosted by LL).

Thus I've created two subtasks on STORM-312

    * STORM-1319 <https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/STORM-1319> for
      publishing the 3p-* repo with the currently used (0.2 based) code
    * STORM-1320 <https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/STORM-1320> for
      upgrading it to Jan's version 0.3

I'm willing to take up STORM-1320
<https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/STORM-1320> once STORM-1319
<https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/STORM-1319> is done.

@Oz: Can you please investigate (or get someone to investigate) whether
a 3p-* repo for the linux libNDOFdev already exists internally at LL and
can be published? If none exists, yet, and we thus have to create one
for Jan's sources from scratch, I'd like someone to walk me through the
process of doing so. (Yes, I know there are guides about that on the
wiki, but I don't even know which of the apparently several ones to follow.)
