 It really depend on a lot of things, if you're not too familiar with
embedded kernel dev starting with an SoC that's already correctly
supported (Allwinner, IMX6, AM335X) and add drivers for missing
subsystem is probably best.
 There is also work that could benefit all SoC (and even all archs)
like doing a proper spi or pwm subsystem (with userland tools like
libpwm and pwmctl etc ...).
 On the most in-demand question I guess RPi support is wanted from our
users for not from our devs. Allwinner is also popular.

 Cheers,
