I wanted to know how can I test kernel(as you specifically mentioned
hardware to do testing). I wanted to know what is 'hands-on"
experience on kernel you mentioned? is it just device driver coding or

I mean here I tried your 7 steps. I wrote some small char and block
device driver. But still dont find myself as good kernel mode
programmer. I dont know which step to follow now.

That is what I feel honestly. Most of the times kernelnewbies mailing
list discuss same subject again and again.
