Ask a Kernel Maintainer

gregkh's picture

I've been writing an occasional "Ask a kernel maintainer" column on the
lwn.net weekly kernel page. It's been a
while since I last wrote one, so I figured it's time to start it up
again.

So, consider this an open request for questions that you've always
wondered, but never knew who to ask, or how to find the answer to, that
you have had about the Linux kernel.

Note, any question that can easily be answered by reading either the
Documentation/HOWTO or Documentation/SubmittingPatches
or Documentation/CodingStyle files in the Linux kernel source
code are not eligible. You should read them first before asking.

Please email them to me or post them in this Google+ thread,
and I'll work over the next few weeks to answer them in the column.
