This depends on how much time you want to devote to this goal.  If you just
need it to make work for you, anyhing that works is good enough, just as
Roland said.  If you want to do it "right", you want to integrate 2.4.x
stuff to OSKit, and have oskit-mach work.

Anything that doesn't break existing systems and isn't worse than what we
have now can go into the linux driver part of gnumach.

But your time is much more usefully spend on oskit-mach if you want to make
it useful to a broad community.
