Hi haiku-development,

I'm a graduate student of Shanghai University. I'm 4 years Linux user. I
have about 2 years experience with Linux kernel driver development and 3
years experience with Linux c/c++ software development. I have wrote various
embedded devices drivers such as ethernet, gpio, uart, ehci etc. I'm
interested in adding USB 3.0 support to haiku in this year's GSOC. I think
the main work is implementing xhci driver.

I have checked out the haiku source code. From the source code It seems that
haiku is a macro kernel just like Linux? From my experience, I need the
following api:
*lock: such as mutex and spinlock
*memory. including allocation and mapping, especially allocate physical
continuous memory and how to map device register space into kernel land
*interrupt: how to install ISR handler
*delay: busy wait and relaxed wait
*schedule work to run in the future

To make development easy I also want to know how unload and load  module.

I'm a newbie in haiku kernel world, would you please give me some
documentations about these kernel API, a book similar to <linux device
drivers> will be very helpful. I only found some topics from here
http://haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/bebook/index.html, but it is marked as
legacy, so are they out of date? especially

Thanks and Best Regards,
