Thanks, Steev. Admittedly, I really don't like Git, but I usually set it up with Hg on my Linux boxes since I figured one day I'll use it.

I've seen how to write a kernel module that does "bad things," so I figured it was fairly simple. I've taken a bigger interest to having a deeper understanding of the kernel and how it's used on ARM machines.

While I've not pushed anything to mainline, myself and a couple others
at Genesi are kernel developers for our ARM machines.  It really isn't
difficult, there's a great talk by Greg KH about it on youtube from
one of the linuxconf conferences (iirc).  The Documentation directory
is immensely helpful (and I do wish some of my co-workers would read
it so I wouldn't have to keep cleaning up after them ;) )   The
Documentation directory also has a todo list in there, iirc.  And one
of the most important things I can stress, if you don't have it
already, is a basic understanding of using Git.
