Networking from the Bottom Up: Device Drivers.
In this tutorial I will describe how to write and
maintain network drivers in FreeBSD and use the
example of the Intel Gigabit Ethernet driver (igb)
throughout the course.
Students will learn the basic data structures and
APIs necessary to implement a network driver in
FreeBSD. The tutorial is general enough that it can
be applied to other BSDs, and likely to other
embedded and UNIX like systems while being specific
enough that given a device and a manual the student
should be able to develop a working driver on their
own. This is the first of a series of lectures on
network that I am developing over the next year or
