Well, if you really want to contribute to the kernel drivers, and you
are open to contribute to anything, you should join first to the linux
driver project (www.linuxdriverproject.org), you will see that they
need lots of developers.
See particularly the DriversNeeded page where you will find drivers
that need to be implemented.
But to my mind the best way to start is to implement a driver for an
unsupported device you have at home, look at kernel sources
Documentation/ sub-directory to find out which part of the kernel is
supposed to support this device, and join the specific mailing-list for
your device (for example webcam, TV tuner=> video4linux); this is the
best way to start in kernel development.
You will contribute indirectly to the armedslack project since it is
based on the linux kernel.
Thanks for you willingness to contribute to this big project!
