The simplified answer is using sloccount.

hald : 14565 lines of C
hald/linux : 10151 lines of C

So, we have several solutions here:
1) HAL architecture doesn't help you to develop the os specific layer... then 
it's a lot of work to port it to something else
2) Linux is not helpful and then requires a lot of code to handle it 
correctly... then maybe for other OSes it'll be easier

Of course both of this statements are not sure... That's why in my humble 
opinion we'll be able to have a clear opinion on HAL when it'll be ported to 
something else than Linux.
