I'm not sure whether you know how the GSoC program works?... (
http://socghop.appspot.com/document/show/program/google/gsoc2009/faqs
should get you started.)

The actual GSoC task is really about improving the code: if you find
something that looks wrong while working on it, you should try to fix it
of course; but trying to track down known bugs is not part of the task.

However, the major goal of GSoC is for new people to get into the
project -- you should learn quite a bit about Mach in the process, and
be able to do other work on it afterwards :-) This is indeed why I have
put this idea on the list.

> b) Do we need to register somewhere before starting?

Well, for actual GSoC participation you need to follow the usual
procedure, as explained in the FAQ. In either case, you are of course
most welcome to start working on it right away -- though it's highly
recommended that you stay in contact and let us know what you are doing
exactly :-)
