Linux Kernel And Device Driver Programming By Mohan Lal Jangir
Linux Operating System has grown tremendously in the last two decades since its inception. Linux which started as researchers' and students' experimental OS is no longer limited to universities now. Almost all industries are widely using Linux as their preferred OS. Therefore, knowing Linux is one of the core requirements for any system engineer regardless of the industry or domain.
Linux kernel, largely due to the complexity involved, remains a mysterious area for many. The proposed book is a must read for someone who wants self-learning and practising Linux kernel and device driver programming.
The book includes the following topics:
User space to kernel communication
Timing and interrupts
Concurrency, locking and contexts
Character, Block (USB) and Network (PC) device drivers
Audience of the Book :
This book useful for computer science students.
The main features of the book are as follows:
1. Each chapter has worked out examples for each topic/sub-topic.
2. The book deals with device driver development of real hardware. Therefore, the reader can himself develop a device driver as he progresses through the book.
