user access to kernel stuff

hi gurus!

I need to be educated. How do I?

- access the HW bypassing the drivers using libraries
(naively, i guess i map from the kernel and send the mapped address to
userland? ?)

- allocate a contigious memory and read/write from userland.
(more genuinely, can i use kernel functions through some???? wrappers?)

if you think that the question is completely crazy, i assure you it is
not. this is to kick the other oses from embedded systems market.

thank you for the help (you will, right?? 8*)
