Traditionally, PSU (Portland State University) handles a number of Linux
kernel related projects for GSoC due to the Linux kernel developers who
are mentors for them, and the faculty who are very clued into the kernel
and x.org and general open source development.

Also, the way that PSU handles the projects, is it relies on the
students to propose the projects, not the other way around.  Due to
that, the success rate is very high as people do not generally propose
things that they do not have some kind of interest in :)

So if you have a kernel related project you wish to do, feel free to
submit it to the PSU group.

p.s. I've been a mentor for the PSU GSoC group for many years now.
