I am trying to understand xen from the perspective of a developer.I
have written basic kernel module and char driver.
After this I have read and understood various device drivers given in
Orielly Greg Kroah Hartman's ,Linux Device Drivers book.
I was looking at following tree


and was browsing through main.c,
I do not think that merely browsing the code I would be able to understand it.
Is there a systematic way for the same, i.e. like there was device
drivers book and ,Linux Kernel Development book of Robert Love,
from which I understood many many concepts.What is the standard
approach to understand the code when it comes to development of Xen
some one wants to be well versed with Xen development?
