Some patches for Clara firmware 4.8.11090

I don't have a Clara and haven't been keeping up with developments. From what I read here there is no official download link for this firmware, and it is only being distributed to the new Clara devices.

I haven't done all the patches yet, but here are some -- not tested.-- for the firmware linked to in geek1011's post in the Clara discussion thread.

`My 24 line spacing values` (libnickel.so.1.0.0):
Spoiler:
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `My 24 line spacing values`
patch_enable = `no`
# patch_group = `Line spacing values alternatives`
#
## This patch changes the values on the line spacing adjustment slider,
## increasing the number of spacing options from 15 to 24, and allowing
## much narrower spacing values to be set.
#
# save r5, initialise loop counter
replace_bytes = 6562AC, BD F5 B2 EF 6D A3, A9 46 00 25 ED 00
# loop to load 14 vals from new table

#
# The first 14 replace_float values above should allow the line spacing to be
# adjusted in increments of one pixel when using a medium sized font on a high
# resolution device. If you use a smaller font size and/or a lower resolution
# device you might find that increasing the slider one step at a time doesn't
# always result in a line spacing increase at each step. In that case, you
# might want to use replacement values that are not quite so close together.
#
# For example: (I use these values on my 758x1024 Glo)
#
#  0.7 0.725 0.75 0.775 0.8 0.825 0.85 0.875 0.9 0.925 0.95 0.975 1.0 1.025 ...
#
# or: (these might better suit the 600x800 Touch)
#
#  0.6 0.633 0.667 0.7 0.733 0.767 0.8 0.833 0.867 9.0 9.33 9.67 1.0 1.025 ...

`Freedom to advanced fonts control` (libnickel.so.1.0.0)
Spoiler:
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `Freedom to advanced fonts control`
patch_enable = `no`
#
## This patch allows the advanced font options (weight/sharpness adjustments)
## to work with sideloaded fonts too. (KEPUB: OTF and TTF. EPUB: TTF only.)
#
# The following passes a junk pointer to N3FontTypeUtil::setupDropdown, but it
# seems the pointer is only passed on to ReadingSettings::getDefaultFontFamily
# where it is discarded without being dereferenced, so it should be safe?
# BEWARE: check whether this still holds in future firmware versions.
#
# N3FontTypeUtil.setupMonotypeDropdown(b,c)
# --> N3FontTypeUtil.setupDropdown(UNDEFINED,b,c)
replace_bytes = 8371DA, 51 46 58 46, 52 46 59 46
replace_bytes = 8371DE, C4 F7 C2 E6, DC F7 90 E7
# N3FontTypeController.setupAdvancedOption(...) --> NOP
replace_bytes = 97BC10, AE F6 8A E1, 00 46 00 46
replace_bytes = 97CA34, AD F6 78 E2, 00 46 00 46
</Patch>


librmsdk.so.1.0.0 hasn't changed, so all the librmsdk.so.1.0.0 patches from 4.8.11073 should work on 4.8.11090 without modification. I think all the libnickel.so.1.0.0 multi-version patches should work too.

Thank you so much, Geoff I'll test these and report back.
ETA: They seem OK to me.

All the ones I use worked OK.
