I had a similar experience with Russell King, who was developing the very first port of Linux to the ARM architecture way back in the 1990s. I couldn't get the kernel to boot on my Archimedes A3020 (which used the newer ARM 250 chip). After a couple of emails exchanged, the next day I packed the A3020 into my backpack and caught a train to south London where Russell lived. It only took him 30 mins or so to diagnose the problem, and thence onward Linux has supported the ARM 250. Not quite on-site service, but pretty close!
