Many functions of the Kernel may either be compiled into the Kernel directly, or compiled as Modules. Linux Kernel Development is a tour de force on developing and understanding the Linux kernel. The Linux Kernel is often misunderstood or not even known about. There is a lot of documentation available both in electronic form on the Internet and in books, both Linux-specific and pertaining to general UNIX questions. The goal is simple - to share my modest knowledge about the insides of the linux kernel and help people who are interested in linux kernel insides, and other low-level subject matter.
