I have been on this list for about 8+ years and Robert and Vlad are the
most helpful people on the list. I have not seen Mulyadi for a while but he
was one of the top posters besides these two.
You on the other hand have not helped one bit in this case besides just
criticising them.

Original poster has made no effort whatsoever to actually look into it more
than  knowing keywords like kernel hacking.
To begin with development, one quick google search will reveal the basic
books you need to read.
There is shit tonne of information on kernelnewbies about kernel
development, but that doesn't seem to be mentioned by OP.
Now, this mentality of spoon feeding people, who want to essentially write
code for CORE of an Operating system, which by very definition is one of
the most complex piece of software in existence, is neither good to the
poster nor to the community. To be frank, there was a lot of good advice in
Vlad's mail except for the fact that it was masked in clever banter.

This type of mail spring up every month without fail, where a newbie will
just ask for help without a proper subject line, without a proper issue,
heck sometimes there is not even a real question. Most of these newbies
never turn up with a real question, let alone a problem which need to be
discussed or learned. On main kernel list, this type of mails will not even
be addressed.

I would recommend that if you really want to help OP, then suggest them
with the help and not criticise people, who are really trying to help here.
Thank you
Warm Regards
