Not much work. The FreeMiNT kernel has only a few noncritical hooks to actual hardware. I made preliminary tests, those small dependencies to Atari hardware can easily be disabled. I just need to take the time to do that cleanly and provide patches. This is my "FreeMiNT for non-Atari hardware" project.

Actually, FreeMiNT always use the underlying XBIOS drivers to do its job
FreeMiNT only provides its own implementation for upper OS layers.
This is why EmuTOS for Amiga is a key component to go forward, even if it is currently ugly.

Of course, this was my main goal when I started this adventure
