There are some difficulties:

The integreted Linux kernel in gnumach is version 2.0.36 with some newer
drivers. If you want to the latest linux- drivers, you have to port some
main kernel functions first.

the src- directory contains untouched linux- sources and the dev- directory
contains some files modified for gnumach.

i.e. src/drivers/foo/bar.c, dev/driver/foo/bar.c: the first one is an original
linux driver and the second contains modifications for gnumach. the compiler
builds the second one and if it's missed, it builds the original file (only
one of them).

both. first you put everything into dev/ and if you have to do some 
modifications,
you put only the relevant files into src/.

I just started a new project 'hurd-pcmcia' at sourceforge and it will become
available in about 72 hours. May I add you?
