HURD to L4 todo

Just as a warning I have been a lurker on this list for only like 4 months.

I found Farid Hajji's todfo list to be good.  I have one idea for it.

In talking about the L4 user-land (drivers):
"  Don't get too fancy here. As long as we don't have a stable driver
  API, it would not be very useful to try to port Linux drivers to
  this new architecture yet."

Sorry for my lack of knowledge about this, but what about something like the 
Uniform Driver
Interface(UDI) at

This would seem very helpful in that it would give us a generic driver 
interface from the start
and if people would use it then we could have more drivers more easily

Hope this is helpful,
Ed Page

ps:  I currently program in C++.  I have been interested in kernel programming 
for a while and
epsecially this project, any ideas on resources to be help me learn more about 
system programming?
