Hey Guys,

Might want to check this out:

http://www.linuxhq.com/lkprogram.html

This has some good documentation, however, I would like to point out:

1) The Kernel Documentation is always out of date. That is because the Linux kernel is a work in progress and probably will be until 2.6.30 sometime.

2) I suspect once the 2.6 API is frozen and work begins on 2.8 or 3.0, documentation will firm up.

However, I would like to see kernel interal API syscalls between 2.0, 2.4, 2.6 eventually kept in a nice searchable website.

Haven't found one that exists, so the only search I have of use right now is google.
