I have read version 0.6 completely but so much has changed in the 1.3.xx kernels that for experienced linux kernel hackers KHG no longer is all that useful.

Was the KHG ever really useful for experienced Linux kernel hackers? I would guess not.

I thinks this is high time we should do a complete overhaul of KHG so that it reflects current changes in the linux kernel especially in the areas such as memory management.

I'm glad you phrased it that way. We should indeed do a complete overhaul of the KHG. Here's how to do this: as you find disparities, please post them as responses. Those responses will be used to update the KHG. Without those responses, the updates will not happen except as I happen to notice the disparities, which doesn't happen much. Without your help, the KHG will remain hopelessly mired in the past.

If you look at the pages, you will see that kind readers have already started this process. To everyone who has contributed a change, fix, elucidation, update, or whatever, thank you very much! Keep up the good work, everyone, and we'll have a document worth reading.
