You might refer to http://www.dit.upm.es/~jmseyas/linux...kers-docs.html
This might have what you are looking for.

The directories are just a classification system for various architectures, drivers, modules common to all architectures...

Maybe this will help http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...nel_index.html

Of course, if you want to dive in to the deep end http://www.tux.org/lkml/

But I'd strongly(!) recommend reading the stuff in my first link first ...
