How much this makes sense will depend largely on the OS you're targeting.

Basically the stuff is usable under GPL. THis means you can redeploy it under 
any OS you choose, so long as you comply with GPL.

I did this with YAFFS. YAFFS started off under Linux, but I ported it to 
WinCE too. The WinCE file-system glue code is to be released under GPL (since 
this is what is required to comply with the original GPL code-base).
