Linux Kernel Development details the design and implementation of the Linux kernel, presenting the content in a manner that is beneficial to those who wish to write and develop kernel code. This book is for anyone who wants a fun, practical approach to the Linux kernel.
The author, a core kernel developer, shares valuable knowledge andexperience on the very latest Linux kernel.The book discusses the major subsystems and features of the Linuxkernel, including their design and implementation, their purpose andgoals, and their interfaces. Specific topics covered include: processmanagement, scheduling, time management and timers, system callinterface, memory addressing and management, caching layers, VFS, kernelsynchronization, debugging, and the kernel community.
The book covers the new 2.6 Linux kernel, and includes numerous sectionson its new features, such as the new O(1) scheduler, the new I/Oschedulers, the new block layer, and kernel preemption.
This book is an authoritative, practical guide that helps programmersbetter understand the Linux kernel, and to write and develop kernelcode.

Linux Kernel Development details the design and implementation of the Linux kernel, presenting the content in a manner that is beneficial to those writing and developing kernel code. While the book discusses topics that are theoretical, it does so with the goal of assisting programmers so they better understand the topics and become more efficient and productive in their coding.
The book discusses the major subsystems and features of the Linux kernel, including design and implementation, their purpose and goals, and their interfaces. Important computer science and operating system design details are also addressed. The book covers the Linux kernel from both angles -- theoretical and applied -- which should appeal to both types of readers.
The author, a core kernel developer, shares valuable knowledge and experience on the very latest Linux kernel.
Specific topics covered will include: all the important algorithms, relevant subsystems, process management, scheduling, time management and timers, system call interface, memory addressing, memory management, paging strategies, caching layers, VFS, kernel synchronization, and signals.
An authoritative, practical guide that helps programmers better understand the Linux kernel, and to write and develop kernel code.
About the Author:
* Authored by core Linux kernel developers.
* In-depth coverage of all the major subsystems and features of the new Linux 2.6 kernel.
* Targeted audience includes programmers interested in gaining relevant and timely information so they may further their kernel development skills.
Robert Love has used Linux since the early days and is active in the open source community. Currently, Robert is employed as a software engineer at MontaVista Software, where he hacks on the Linux kernel.
Robert's kernel projects include the process scheduler, the preemptive kernel, the VM, and multiprocessing enhancements. His other open source projects include schedutils and procps, both of which he maintains. Robert has given numerous talks on the kernel and he is a contributing editor for Linux Journal. Robert currently lives in Gainesville, Florida and enjoys photography and good food.
