The Linux kernel has been worked over by professional programmers for more
than a decade, and as a result the number of things that can be attacked
by a relatively unskilled newcomer is fairly low.

Your best place to start is probably under drivers/staging, where we put
all the stuff that's *not* up to standards yet.  Each driver should have
a TO-DO file describing what needs doing, and Greg HK is always willing to
take checkpatch style fixups for the staging tree (many other maintainers
*don't* want style patches that aren't connected to other work - if there's
other active work, they can introduce merge conflicts, and if nobody's working
on something, it's best to not touch stable code...)
