TCP implementation in Linux Kernel

Hi:

I have a small change to be done to the TCP stack of Linux. Well, I'm ready to do enough reading. I have a fair idea of what RFC 793 says.

Could you please gimme a few links of where I can find good information about what does every function in the kernel source do?

Also, will I be able to find information about how the protocol rfc "maps" to the implementation (source files). For ex: what processes do what function and like that...

Well, I searched through the net. I got some info. But a big picture would help; I mean, the organization of the implementation.

Thanks a lot in advance!!

i don't know of any web resources that explain each function in kernel - i doubt that exists :)

if you have an IRC client you can connection to either irc.oftc.net or irc.openprojects.net (both port 6667) and ask in the channel #kernelnewbies. there are a lot of kernel developers in there.

hope that helps,
Max
