The "Linux Kernel Primer" offers a comprehensive view of the underpinnings

of the Linux kernel. This book starts with a guide of the necessary tools a

developer needs to be able to understand and manipulate the source code

including cryptic programming fundamentals found throughout the kernel

code. It then follows up with an in depth analysis of the major subsystems

including process management, memory management, scheduling, I/O, and

filesystems. This book also provides information necessary to get started

developing on the Linux kernel. The specifics of Intel and PowerPC

architecture implementations are covered side by side providing perspective on

architecture specific features and how Linux make use of them.
