Hm... Would it be hard to implement a different patch for the v215? Is
there any gotchas?

I could try giving it a go perhaps (although my C is somewhat rusty). I
think I managed to get something going last time I had a look at it,
although it was a bit hack-ish. In such a case, what would be the best
way to discuss the proposed patches - issue tracker or there is some
sort of mailing list?

From what I can tell, the main difficulty comes from certain packages
providing both the init script and systemd service files.
