Sure. What kind of pointer you are thinking about? :)

The linux mainline kernel has an ieee802154 stack:

This stack is by no means complete, security is missing for example, but it is a
very good starting point.

There is also a mac802154 stack in the works which shares a lot of the driver
functionality. This stack lives currently in the linux-zigbee tree which is the
route for such changes into the mainline kernel. Based on this stack there are
different drivers, one of them the cc2420:

More info about the stack and its userland tools can you find here:

Are these the kind of pointers you where asking for?
