where is tq_struct in 2.6 kernel

hi masters,

I am new to kernel programming and learning its trade. I am writing a module for lan bandwidth manager. I designed one module successfully for 2.4 kernel . But when I tried to upgrade it for 2.6 kernel I found that struct tq_struct is missing . Is there any suitable replacement for this structure in 2.6 kernel. Can anybody help me out. Please tell the correct path to where the replacement is defined. thanking you...

I don't know where's is the structure you're looking for, but for this kind of question, you have to use "ctags" on the sources (it can take a while on linux kernel sources) and then, if you'r using vi like editor, "vi -t the_struct_or_function_or_whatever_youre_lookin_for"... Many editor are "ctags" compliant but the "-t" argument could be different for non vi like editors.
