Kernel documentation

I think a diagram of function calls would be too much to fit in a
reasonable sized diagram. I'm aware of diagrams of network function calls,
and they are already big.

You can use linux cross referencing (lxr) websites to follow function calls
or download lxr and build the same thing for your own source code.

I think you can also google diagrams of different kernel subsystems to find
useful diagrams.
