Memory management is not something I know much about - relevant classes I took at the university were limited to pre-386 assembly and digital logic, so I'm not even sure that my understanding of a "page" is accurate.
Can someone recommend reading materials (preferably free, but don't rule something really good out just on that account) on this stuff?
And otherwise, I'm curious how the proposed changes would affect the work of people who are trying to get Linux to scale down to smaller devices?
