You will want to discuss the first two of these, particularly the
system call assignment, on opensolaris-code, prior to spending time on
patch/build/test. In particular, there is a group that would prefer
to delete loadable system calls, in favour of only supporting the
DDI/DKI (and maybe an FSI for filesystems) as the committed public
interface for loadable kernel functionality.
I recommend networking-discuss for the RFC1788/RFC4620 proposal.
