From the TODO list I think the following tasks are interesting: * Split thread_info off of kernel stack. * Move kernel stack to vmap area. * Implement kernel relocation and KASLR for ARM If there is already some work in progress and there are some small tasks pending to be completed, I'd like to help. I might need someone to point me out to the work already in place and, after reading some code and asking some questions I might be able to take it from there. I have to say that by no means I'm an expert in any of those areas, but I'm willing to learn and become a long term contributor. Recently, I've been using Coccinelle to constify structures, and fixing a variety of Coverity issues (API usage errors, NULL pointer dereferences, control flow and code maintainability issues, etc..). I'm also using Coccinelle to identify lock/unlock issues. Thank you! -- Gustavo A. R.
