This isn't exactly what you want (since it's not referring to the actual
hardware), but CGL 3.0 will include a hardware specification that
describes the operating system changes needed to support hardware. This
specification should give more information on open source projects that
implement these changes.
**These views are not necessarily those of my employer.**
