There probably is a bunch of them only in sourceforge... the biggest
issue here is that if the project owners do not try to contact lkml
we'll never know about them...

Maybe after a while when Linux Driver Project gets more visibility
they'll come to us...

anyway, a search in sf.net for linux kernel module results in lots and
lots of pages... what about asking the developers in this list to take
a look there and just propose what they want to do???
