This is the repo I worked off of

Isn't that the same thing? You need updated code to update the
book. Not to throw water on your enthusiasm but that book is amazingly
well written, there are [throw away] comments in that book that have
taught me loads about subtle concepts of kernel development.

I would be very hesitant removing any text from that book if one is not
_very_ experienced. There is a wealth of knowledge in it and the few
functions that are out of date do little to reduce it's educational
value IMO.

Sure, it would be nice to have a few of the newer kernel features
included but again this is not a job for just anyone. Those guys that
wrote that book are seriously experienced.

Hope this helps,
