Some would say this has been a long time in coming, but others are probably looking around to see if they can spot Babe the pig taking off: Microsoft has announced it is submitting 20,000 lines of source code to the Linux kernel under the GPL2 licence.
In the past two years, I have read Linux kernel development, understand the Linux kernel, Linux Device Driver, Professional Linux kernel Architecture and some other books about Linux kernel.I have read some code about the Linux kernel.I have done several basic experiment such as adding a system call and written some useless modules in my personal computer.I really want to contribute some code to t
Just when you thought it couldn't top itself -- having contributed Linux kernel code under the GPL, broadly supported Linux alongside Windows with its systems management and other software, and spun off a new subsidiary dedicated to openness, Microsoft showed yet more Linux and open source love recently, adding an impressive Linux lineup to supported software on its Azure cloud.

I am working on a platform where loadable module is not an option(for security reason). When the kernel boots, if I look into /dev, I assume it shows all the device that are compiled as part of the kernel. My question is, how to I add a device to the kernel? For example, gpio driver source code is available in the /linux/driver/gpio directly.
The first release candidate of version 3.11 of the Linux kernel has arrived, and to commemorate the occasion, Linux creator Linus Torvalds has given the kernel a new codename and a new, Microsoft-inspired boot logo to match.
