There's a good amount of work to be done on Syzkaller for FreeBSD
still - there's a list at the bottom of

One of my Waterloo co-op students from last term worked on automation
for Syzkaller/FreeBSD, and Mitchell, one of this term's students, is
working on the first item from the above list: kernel coverage
