  once upon a time, i wrote an (admittedly-dated) online course on how
to get started with kernel programming (and, yes, it needs updating


ignore the $39 reference, the course has been publicly available for
free for a while.

  on the second point -- how to *send* that driver to the kernel --
don't you kind of need a rationale for why you're working on a driver
that isn't in the kernel already? i suspect that if you're already
competent enough to be writing a driver for something that isn't in
the kernel, you probably already know the protocol for submitting it,
