Core API Documentation

This is the beginning of a manual for core kernel APIs. The conversion (and writing!) of documents for this manual is much appreciated!

Core utilities

This section has general and “core core” documentation. The first is a massive grab-bag of kerneldoc info left over from the docbook days; it should really be broken up someday when somebody finds the energy to do it.

Concurrency primitives

How Linux keeps everything from happening at the same time. See locking for more related documentation.

Everything else

Documents that don’t fit elsewhere or which have yet to be categorized.
