The best place to start hacking the Linux kernel is the drivers/staging subsystem.

Each subdirectory has its own TODO file which lists what the maintainers and
regular contributors expect it to be done to finally move a driver out from staging
to the more mature parts of the kernel.

For how to set up your development tools and to understand how to work

P.S.: This question has been answered lots of times. Before asking, one should better
do some homework (Google search and the likes)  :) :) :)
