I think you'd have to take it on a case-by-case basis* and do a fair bit 
of diagnosis yourself. One way to do it is to enable the PA_DEBUG macros 
in your build and redirect the output to a log file. Obviously the 
easiest thing would be to borrow the hardware and trace it with a debugger.

Based on the way things have been around here lately I think you'd need 
to develop a working fix yourself and then submit it. I would hope that 
people here could provide support for debugging, but it's unlikely that 
sending debug logs alone would be sufficient to get us to fix a 
device-specific issue.

Does than answer your question?
