I am thinking of getting my hands dirty with Linux kernel by writing drivers for some real devices for which there are no drivers available currently. The device specification should also be freely available. Could anyone please point me where I can find and order such devices?

"The device specification should also be freely available' - This is the typical reason why PC devices do not have Linux drivers: the manufacturers do not publish the HW specifications. You would have to sign an NDA to get those details. The PC hardware market is so competitive that manufacturers try not to give any advantage to other brands. –  sawdust Aug 30 '12 at 16:58
