I'm also quite interested in what compsci students can do for the
kernel project. I'm currently doing a little embedded development and
research at school, but I and a few others would jump at the chance
to work on the kernel (besides finding duplicate problems that the
x86 merge is already taking care of, of course. ;)

Also (as an aside), we're looking at redoing our operating systems
curriculum out here at school...anyone aware of (relatively good) OS
curricula? (time scope: one semester.)
