The kernel is a computer program at the core of a computer's operating system that has complete control over everything in the system. On most systems, the kernel is one of the first programs loaded on startup after the bootloader. The critical code of the kernel is usually loaded into a separate area of memory, which is protected from access by application programs or other, less critical parts of the operating system.
The IA Linux kernel makes extraordinary power available to every Linux developer. In IA Linux Kernel: Design and Implementation, the kernel project's leaders systematically present every major subsystem, introducing interfaces used by Linux to abstract platform differences, showing how these interfaces are used in IA, and illuminating key issues associated with Linux kernel operation on any platform. The book starts with an overview of Linux and the IA architecture and then discusses each major subsystem of the kernel in more detail. In addition, hardware architects may find the book useful as a case study of how one particular operating system takes advantage of IA Similarly, software architects interested in designing other operating systems for IA will find many tips on how to handle some of the.

By realizing that desire, we hope not only to shine a light on the inner workings of Linux, but also to share some of the excitement and the creative processes that are involved in solving the many technical challenges that arise when designing an operating system for a platform as radical and innovative as IA Save to Library.

The book starts with an overview of Linux and the IA architecture and then discusses each major subsystem of the kernel in more detail. These chapters place great emphasis not just on the "what", but also on the "how" and "why" of how Linux accomplishes its tasks. Each chapter has two primary components: the first describes the interfaces that the Linux kernel uses to abstract platform differences, and the second describes how these interfaces have been realized for IA
