3. Understanding the Linux Kernel, Third Edition
Author: by Daniel P. Bovet
Published at: O'Reilly Media; 3rd edition (November 1, 2005)
In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order.
It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn’t kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks. The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel.
Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does.

6. Linux Driver Development for Embedded Processors – Second Edition: Learn to develop Linux embedded drivers with kernel 4.9 LTS
Author: by Alberto Liberal de los Ríos
Published at: Independently published (October 31, 2018)
LINUX DRIVER DEVELOPMENT FOR EMBEDDED PROCESSORS -SECOND EDITION-The flexibility of embedded Linux, the availability of powerful, energy efficient processors designed for embedded computing and the low cost of new processors are encouraging many industrial companies to come up with new developments based on embedded processors.
This book will teach you how to develop device drivers for Device Tree embedded Linux systems. You will learn how to write different types of Linux drivers, as well as the appropriate Application Program Interfaces (APIs) and methods to interface with kernel and user spaces.
This book is meant to be practical, but also provides an important theoretical base. Nearly thirty drivers are written and ported to three different processors. You can choose between the NXP i. MX7D, Microchip SAMA5D2 and Broadcom BCM2837 processors to develop and test the drivers, whose implementation is described in detail in the practical lab sections of the book.
Before you start reading, I encourage you to acquire one of these processor boards whenever you have access to some GPIOs, and at least one SPI and I2C controller. One of the boards used to implement the drivers is the famous Raspberry PI 3 Model B board.
