Well, for starters, it's SysV, not BSD.
Yeah, Unix systems are all similar.. but different enough to be annoying. Only thing out there that has so many different variants. One can somewhat jump from one to the other, but there are always weird little things. And the driver APIs are vastly different of course.
My question was simply how close are they in any sort of driver compatibility to ease porting. I know Linux has done so many different things on how it handles devices that it's probably no where near what SYSV should need.
Hell, if someone can fork / port a file system like ZFS from Solaris into *BSD/Linux, taking a USB stack from one of those and putting it into SYSV can't be too hard, right (read 'too hard' as not impossible).
