  as the tech editor of the r. love kernel book, i can safely say that
there are no really current kernel books out there anymore -- the best
docs are the in-kernel ones.

  also, if you want to get started mucking with the kernel and
submitting patches, consider improving the documentation -- there is a
lot of documentation that is at least a little out of date and could
use all the help it can get, and that's an easy and safe way to get
started getting your name into the kernel git log.
