After reading/skimming "essentials" and "kernel drivers", my favourite
way is to use Code::Blocks, make an empty project and then recursively
import all the kernel sources into it.
It is big pile of source and import takes a few minutes, but being able
to browse, search and jump effotlessly through the tree more than makes
Caveat: C::B will crash during the import phase if during that time
there is other program that significantly loads CPUs or if user
generates gtk events by clicking on the program window.
I suspect the cause for this in wxGTK, but haven't been able to pinpoint
it. It's good enough for me at this time...
