The Linux kernel user's and administrator's guide
=================================================

The following is a collection of user-oriented documents that have been
added to the kernel over time.  There is, as yet, little overall order or
organization here — this material was not written to be a single, coherent
document!  With luck things will improve quickly over time.

This initial section contains overall information, including the README
file describing the kernel as a whole, documentation on kernel parameters,
etc.

   README
   kernel-parameters
   devices
   sysctl/index

This section describes CPU vulnerabilities and their mitigations.

.. toctree::
   :maxdepth: 1

   hw-vuln/index

Here is a set of documents aimed at users who are trying to track down
problems and bugs in particular.

.. toctree::
   :maxdepth: 1

   reporting-bugs
   security-bugs
   bug-hunting
   bug-bisect
   tainted-kernels
   ramoops
   dynamic-debug-howto
   init
   kdump/index
   perf/index

This is the beginning of a section with information of interest to
application developers.  Documents covering various aspects of the kernel
ABI will be found here.

   sysfs-rules

The rest of this manual consists of various unordered guides on how to
configure specific aspects of kernel behavior to your liking.
