It all depends on who you got this "BSP" from.  You are paying for
support from the vendor whose chip you bought, why not consult their
documentation and ask them for help?

At the kernel level, there is no difference between "linux bsp" and
"android bsp", it's all just Linux down there.

And again, ask your vendor for this help, you are paying for it already.

Not really, sorry. Please be specific as to what you have tried and what
did not work.
