if you're using armbian, copy to /root/build/userpatches/kernel/sun8i-default/ , IIRC

I was able to successfully compile the kernel with the modified patch. Copied over the appropriate files.
I got it to boot, it now reads 2 controllers and all directions on the joysticks now work.
However I have another issue which was present before doing the patch.
My coin buttons do not register and player 2 start button does not always register .
It's not a wiring or microswitch issue as the same setup works properly with the stock software.
Slowly making some progress.

Glad to hear you got over that. I know it's painful but once you figure it all out you know the drill. Hopefully you get your other problems ironed out!

Thanks for your help. I would not have gotten this far without it.

So it turns out it's a hardware issue. I plugged the usb cable into my windows computer to test it and in windows it does not register all the buttons either.
The software that comes on the board is android based and I think it uses gpio pins for the buttons and joysticks. 
So I guess I'm going to try to figure out how to get retrorangepi to read the buttons and joysticks through gpio drivers.
