If licensing is not a problem (GPL) you could take a look at the ReactOS 
source tree as we implement ntdll, ntoskrnl and the hal. We may have 
something in our code that will be of use to you for loading your 
driver. Mabey you could adapt parts of ReactOS to a Linux Module or 
something if licensing is a issue.
