It's my understanding that the OSKit has a set of Linux drivers from an
older version of 2.2 Linux. It doesn't contain the newest set of
drivers. I don't think OSKit is set up to easily be able to drop in any
driver from the Linux codebase and get it to work, but I admit I'm
uninformed here.

I'm also under the impression that OSKit is x86 only. L4Env may have
loftier goals. We'll know more when they release more information and
documentation. I'm just spreading rumors here.
