chapter reviewers for new OS textbook needed

I am currently at work on a new edition of my textbook, Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to carefully read a chapter to check for technical errors, computational errors, and typos. In return, you will be acknowledged in the Preface and receive a free copy of the book when it comes out late this year. I would need feedback in about 4 to 6 weeks.
This is a technical rather than a user book, so you need a technical background in this area. Chapters include

UNIX Internals
Linux Internals
Process Description and Control
Threads and SMP
Concurrency: Mutual Exclusion and Synchronization
Concurrency: Deadlock
Memory Management
Virtual Memory
Uniprocessor Scheduling
Multiprocessor and RealTime Scheduling
I/O Management and Disk Scheduling
File Management
Distributed Processing, Client/Server, and Clusters
Distributed Process Management

Please mention a special interest in one of these if you wish. The files are in PDF format. Thanks!
