(Correction: I've never worked on D3D :-)
Offhand, if you're not already a 3d person, that might be kind of hard?
Although maybe the "get dxdiag working" task might be easy
enough. (The only problem with that is it involves committing
someone else's code, which isn't a good focus for a GSOC project.)

Sure, you could find and fix tons of problems that way, I bet.
