I am an end-user with no development experience. Would my input in
testing still be valuable? If so, then how can I start? Simply
pointing me to the relevant documentation for enabling the kernel you
mentioned would be a start.

Once I get it up, what should I test? Should I just open different
audio applications (Amarok, Skype, VLC) and try to play some files?
