Ok, so 1 minute of searching led me to believe that ring 0 is
kernel-level privilege in software. As such, yes, you can access ring
0 in D, D compiles to native machine code, and can do anything C/C++
can do.

I don't know if thats what you mean, but I do know that somebody
started to write a microkernel in D (the project is now dead) so
there's that.
