PegasusAstro DMFC with DC Motor

I bought a PegasusAstro DMFC to use it with a DC Motorfocus on Stellarmate

When I switch to DC Motor mode I can control the Motor via the knob and via the standalone App but not in Stellarmate/EKOS

When I Set it to Stepper Mode in EKOS the Motor moves, but it is not working correctly, of cause, as it is a DC Motor

Any help would be highly appreciated

I have done some more investigation:

According to the Interface documenation (pegasusastro.com/wp-content/uploads/2015...al-Command-Table.pdf) the G commands should be used for relative movements. 

The indi driver seem to have implemented the M command for absolute as well as for the relative movements. (github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/drivers/focuser/dmfc.cpp

I could imagine, that the dmfc might reject M commands when Motortype is DC

Unfortunately I don't know how to correct this in the driver and bring it to Stellarmate :-(

I'll take a look at this tomorrow if it is not too much work to add. We need to get INDI released soon.
