Gleh.  This hasn't been my week.  :(

Besides not being able to spell 'Kernel' I forgot to point out that
the links to the kernel's sources are AFAICT only available from the
HTML version when zoomed in.  The 'plain HTML' link is in the sidebar
of the interactive Kernel map; when the HTML version opens, click it
to zoom.  Structure names then become links into the source code.

Incidentally, anyone have any pointers for some "easy reading" docs
about the kernel?  I read Tanenbaum's "Operating Systems: Design and
Implementation" 2nd Edition and found I could grok the Minix kernel.
Something similar for Linux would be great.
