I'm happy to help out with kbuild stuff. But please be a bit more specific :-)
I've got most of the infrastructure in place for integrating klibc in
the kernel last I looked - but then I got sidetracked while waiting
for hpa to do the file-reorg we sort of agreed at.

Did not see that happened so I concluded integration in kernel were low
on priority again - so I focussed on other issues.

A few days work (in spare time so calendar timewise it is more) is needed
for full integration in kernel.
I may even backport some kbuild stuff to klibc to reuse same infrastructure
for the programs - but dunno until I take a closer look.
