Yes, that's not a bad idea.

I see another problem with the kernel-DRIVER strategy. Currently a
serial driver is missing for gnumach2. So modem users can't go
online. OSKit has some character drivers, mainly in the FreeBSD part
of the driver libs (liboskit_freebsd_devs). Right now only the
Linux drivers (liboskit_linux_devs) are used for gnumach2. But when we
want to use the char drivers we need to load drivers from FreeBSD. I
don't know if the cool kernel-DRIVER configuration will work anymore.
