At least the BSD people are; nobody came up with a BSD implementation of
the *kit/u* stuff from Linux, so we're still using Hal.

Considering Linux distributions don't even ship Hal these days, doesn't
it make sense to just build it depending on whether it is present on the
system where solid is being built?

Wasn't Alberto Villa made responsible for libsolid-hal some time ago?
