TUTORIALS 》 Adding your own Kernel Modules into Linux Kernel Source | Linux Kernel Programming

Whenever you do custom kernel modules, you can optionally make it a part of existing Linux Kernel source. This does not mean you are submitting your kernel module to the mainline kernel source (i.e kernel.org Linux Kernel Foundation). What I meant is, you can make your kernel module(s) part of Linux Kernel source so that when you compile your kernel you can automatically compile your kernel module(s) too. As well when you create/modify kernel .config configuration file (such as via make menuconfig, etc), you can enable or disable your kernel module(s) too.

To do the same you have to register (and include) your custom Kernel Module's Kconfig and Makefile to the existing Kconfig and Makefile of the Linux Kernel source Here is a detailed multi-episode video of mine which gives the overall idea and the big-picture.

GPS Geo-tracking system using LinkIt ONE ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
The LinkIt ONE development platform is an open source, high performance board for prototyping Wearables and IoT devices. It is based on MediaTek Aster (MT2502) combined with high performance Wi-Fi (MT5931) and GPS (MT3332) chipsets. It also provides similar pin-out features to Arduino boards, making it easy to connect various sensors, peripherals, and Arduino shields. LinkIt ONE is an all-in-one prototyping board for IoT/wearables devices. Integrating GSM, GPRS, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth features into a basic Arduino form factor.

Code with Kiran - Live Coding | Linux Kernel Programming | Kernel Libraries ↗
Saturday' 01-Jan-2022
Here is a my multi-episode Youtube video series of me doing a live code (Code with Kiran Series). Linux Kernel source consists of many libraries within. For example such as to create and manage Linked Lists, String Operations, Encryption Algorithms, Compression Algorithms, and so on. In the Kernel, various Kernel Modules (including various Device Drivers) will use these Kernel inclusive Libraries. Unlike user-space programming, in Kernel Space when you code, you have to use these Libraries which are actually part of kernel (i.e sharing the same address space). And in some cases you can also make your own libraries and publish as well. In the case of user-space programs, we use third-party libraries (explicit or implicit), but that cannot happen when you code in kernel space. The libraries share the same address space and they are part of Linux Kernel mainline source. Hence it is important to understand the significance of using such library as demonstrated in my video series bel

Smart NIC Cards ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
NIC Cards (Network Interface Cards) traditionally contain controller chip which takes care of the core aspects, such as packet reception, buffering (till they are read by OS device drivers), etc. But these days increasingly modern NIC cards can perform several CPU Network Offload functions such as packet/frame checksum, etc. Such hardware offload features of modern NIC cards is crucial to process packets and support packet data transfer rates of around 1Gbps, 10Gbps, even 40Gbps and so on. But beyond that such as 100Gbps and so on, at times even a high-end Xeon/ Intel/ AMD processors will struggle if need to support transfer rates of around 100Gbps or beyond (situations like Link Bonding). These are the situations we need what we call as Smart NIC Cards. A Smart NIC card implements most of the network traffic processing on the NIC itself that would necessarily be performed by the CPU (i.e Operating System) in the case of a traditional NIC card.
