SpeakUp and the Raspberry Pi...more

Hello Martin,

I'm a ham too, G4XBF.

I have added 2 issues to the Raspberry Pi Foundation's bug tracker to 
try to get the problems fixed.

In the mean-time I can probably make SpeakUp work by using a USB sound 
device.  The kernel oops is caused by the queueing mechanism that 
interfaces to the Broadcom GPU on the RPI.
