RFM9X.IoTCore Adafruit LoRa Radio Bonnet support

The RFM9X chip select line on the Adafruit LoRa Radio Bonnet 868 or 915MHz with OLED RFM95W is connected to pin 26(CS1), the reset line to pin 22(GPIO25) and the interrupt line to pin 15(GPIO22).

When I ran the RFM9XLoRaDeviceClient from my RFM9X.IoTCore library with the following configuration

#if ADAFRUIT_RADIO_BONNET
	private const byte ResetLine = 25;
	private const byte InterruptLine = 22;
	private Rfm9XDevice rfm9XDevice = new Rfm9XDevice(ChipSelectPin.CS1, ResetLine, InterruptLine);
#endif

public void Run(IBackgroundTaskInstance taskInstance)
{
	rfm9XDevice.Initialise(Frequency, paBoost: true, rxPayloadCrcOn : true);
#if DEBUG
	rfm9XDevice.RegisterDump();
#endif
	rfm9XDevice.OnReceive += Rfm9XDevice_OnReceive;
#if ADDRESSED_MESSAGES_PAYLOAD
	rfm9XDevice.Receive(UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(Environment.MachineName));
#else
	rfm9XDevice.Receive();
#endif
	rfm9XDevice.OnTransmit += Rfm9XDevice_OnTransmit;

	Task.Delay(10000).Wait();

	while (true)
	{
		string messageText = string.Format("Hello from {0} ! {1}", Environment.MachineName, MessageCount);
		MessageCount -= 1;

		byte[] messageBytes = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(messageText);
		Debug.WriteLine("{0:HH:mm:ss}-TX {1} byte message {2}", DateTime.Now, messageBytes.Length, messageText);
#if ADDRESSED_MESSAGES_PAYLOAD
		this.rfm9XDevice.Send(UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("AddressHere"), messageBytes);
#else
		this.rfm9XDevice.Send(messageBytes);
#endif
		Task.Delay(10000).Wait();
	}
}
#endif

I could see messages being sent and received in the debug output

Next step modify my Adafruit IO and Azure IoT Hub/Central field gateways.
