The third edition is great: it's up-to-date as of the 2.6.32 and 2.6.34 kernel!

Highly and enthusiastically recommended!!"

Professional Linux Kernel Architecture
6.  Professional Linux Kernel Architecture by Wolfgang Mauerer
The list author says:
  "Update [feb '09]: just got it. Initial impression: pros- v solid and vast coverage of internals topics, arch-independent. Cons- hoped for a lighter writing style, arch-independent (would have preferred some depth), seems fairly long winded.

Nope, I haven't read it - yet. From the general reviews I've seen though, I can't wait to get my hands on it and check it out in detail. Looks very promising."
