What kind of selfmade dongle do you have?
Are you also able to communicate via IrComm ?
This was one of my past intentions - I finally stopped the work, even I 
managed to add the IrComm protocoll in my kernel. The final problem was, that 
I would had needed a fork command that isn't available in this way on a 
noemmu system...
Finally I took an active dongle from Actisys and communicate via a standard 
3-wire serial interface. Works fine, but was expensive (if you don't compare 
the time you waste for patching/hacking)
I am unsing the uC5272 board
