To get a deeper understanding of memomry managment (and fragmentation)
on linux I would recommend the Memory Managment case study chapter of
"Modern Operating Systems" from Andrew S Tanenbaum.

It has a own Case Study Study Part with Chapters for several modern
Operating Systems, one being Linux. There it covers its Memory managment
in nice detail.
