Parent article: A summary of 2.6.15 API changes
The changes are significant to certain groups of developers and are
(generally) necessary, LWN's tracking of them is good, programming by them
is a nightmare.
At present, about the only way to really understand the kernel is to draw
elder signs and summon Cthulhu. The next-best solution seems to be to buy
one of the better books on the 2.6 kernel, then run through every single
change documented by LWN, producing a set of updates/inserts, then finally
produce a loose-leaf binder with complete documentation, which you can
then update every time some new kernel patch comes along.
What would be really good is if someone has already done this. Anyone know
if that's happened?
