be do-able in 3 months even though I've never written a driver.

I've already done this and it is in 2.6.16. There's still some work
to be done on the filesystem; check out to help out.

Yeah, I immediately found out =) Some very good explanation on your site ( I see that you've implemented most of the work, and I can't really figure out any isolated development suitable for a school project. But please, if you have an idea, say so.

Otherwise I'll probably dig up something. Just needs to be a small kernel-whatever project.

Is there someone maintaining a list of non-implemented ideas for kernel features/drivers?
