Everyone starts somewhere, even code archaeologists. At my former School
a Lecturer taught Operating Systems by getting the students to write
kernel modules for MINIX on a VM (networking iirc). I'm sure the
majority of those students would get horribly tied up in 32 vs 64 issues
like this if they experienced them; despite that, they broadly succeeded
in writing the kernel modules and passing the course.
