  the lead-in: for the purposes of updating a pile of my existing
kernel tutorials and courseware (and writing new material), i'm
digging into the source to document numerous concepts from beginning
to end, and i'm not surprised when i trip over all sorts of things
that are fairly simple but i don't immediately know the answer to.

  so for the next while, i'm going to ask all sorts of questions to
clarify numerous things, then i'll write up the final results and post
them for public consumption at my web site so other people can take
advantage of this. and i figured it would be useful to ask those
questions on this list, as this list is full of clever people who
probably know the answers.

  a lot of the early questions will be based on clarifying details of
the driver model, as the current documentation under
Documentation/driver-model/ is somewhat out of date so i desperately
need to put together something far more current.

  first question(s) coming shortly ...
