I would offer the imte but I know next to nothing about the kernel.
I'd REALLY like to get into it but
a) The KHG is out of date
b) The version of the kernel with docs is >70Mb and I only have
~40Mb free.
c) There are no other docs.


I've tried going through the code starts at boot.s, got around
tty_init(?) but somewhere near there hit a chunk of assembler with no
comments. At that point I got stuck...

I'D LIKE TO HELP BUT COULD SOME-ONE CLUE ME IN?
