Are there any places (besides other drivers in the kernel) to look for
documents on how to write module-drivers/in-kernel drivers?

Should I start by giving people a link to the source code? ;) We need this
driver by the end of this summer, so I thought that making something that
could go in the std. kernel-tree was the best way of doing things. That way
we don't have to patch stuff each time either.
