Looks okay. Unfortunately I'd need something with the same chipset to look into it further and I couldn't find anything on amazon. If somebody has a link, please post it here.

I don't think that's possible. The patched driver will always return 0 in that function. Are you 100% sure it was copied to the right place?

Re: system calls

IIRC, when you install sysdig, it pulls in some userland binary for it, and also the driver. I'm guessing you've removed the userland stuff, but the dkms package for the driver was left behind. I'm not at the computer right now, so I can't get the exact package name, but apt search sysdig should hel...

Re: What does the 'at' symbol (@) do in front of a command?

It makes the command restart if it crashes, according to this: https://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXSession#autostart_configuration_file How does it determine it's crashed? It looks at the exit code. https://github.com/lxde/lxsession/blob/45f58c57cac27a0443d859462414352de7f33f42/lxsession/app.vala#L136

We aren't able to distribute widevine legally. However, you should look up widevine raspberry Pi vivaldi. You should find a guide with the steps on how to get it for another browser. The same steps work for chromium.

if your 'apt policy' output is the same as posted above, you've messed up your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Re: system calls

To install dkms packages, you need to install raspberrypi-kernel-headers first. Otherwise apt pulls in the wrong headers package.

Although in this case it doesn't matter since the version of sysdig-dkms in apt fail to build against the current kernel anyway.
