Sounds like a good (and fun) project for me. I've prior experience in embedded 
systems programming, including setting up cross toolchains from scratch. I also 
have prior experience writing i2c drivers, including several hwmon drivers. 
Last but not least I have a bachelor degree in electronics which might come in 
helpfull. I only have one question, what is the time frame they have in mind 
for these drivers? For me this will mostly be as time allows.
