I can't resist mentioning that Kirk McKusick and others are working on a
(paper) book on FreeBSD kernel, based on FreeBSD 5 series to replace very
good but aging Design and Implementation of 4.4BSD Operating System (from
the FreeBSD viewpoint).
Last time I talked with him (early this summer) he had a guesstimate that
it'd be complete next summer. OTOH, predicting is hard, especially
predicting the future. ;)
I'm sure waiting for this book...
There's also FreeBSD Architecture Handbook
which supposedly works well as a "patch set" for the 4.4BSD book for the
folks that already feel reasonably comfortable with kernel concepts.
