It's interesting and surprising that they would consider adopting Hal. I
think Hal's a very necessary project and needs some work, and bringing it
into the kernel source would probably help. But it sounds like a little
bit of a crazy idea. Isn't Hal supposed to be multiplatform?

Perhaps what is needed is just better communication between Hal and LKML?

the HAL api presented to userspace should be cross platform, but the part of HAL that does the work is very platform specific. a cross platform version is just all the specific versions combined with ifdefs and similar

The different platform versions are actually in subdirectories, not ifdeffed out. HAL's not *that* ugly. :)
