To say this explicitly: the conference is about infrastructure on both
the kernel and the userspace side of the medal. It's about all that
stuff in the kernel that needs to interface directly with userspace,
but even more about all the userspace stuff that interfaces directly with 
the kernel. FFADO seems to do the latter. Hence, FFADO fits
*perfectly* into what Plumber's is about I would say.

There's always the Linux Foundation Travel Fund. Since the Linux
Foundation is backing this conference I am pretty sure we can find
some funding for you (off list).
