/**
 *	struct net_device - The DEVICE structure.
 *		Actually, this whole structure is a big mistake.  It mixes I/O
 *		data with strictly "high-level" data, and it has to know about
 *		almost every data structure used in the INET module.
 *
 *	@name:	This is the first field of the "visible" part of this structure
 *		(i.e. as seen by users in the "Space.c" file).  It is the name
 *	 	of the interface.

 *
 *	@hw_enc_features:	Mask of features inherited by encapsulating devices
 *				This field indicates what encapsulation
 *				offloads the hardware is capable of doing,
 *				and drivers will need to set them appropriately.
 *
 *	@mpls_features:	Mask of features inheritable by MPLS
 *
 *	@ifindex:	interface index
 *	@group:		The group the device belongs to
 *
 *	@stats:		Statistics struct, which was left as a legacy, use
 *			rtnl_link_stats64 instead
 *
 *	@rx_dropped:	Dropped packets by core network,
 *			do not use this in drivers
 *	@tx_dropped:	Dropped packets by core network,
 *			do not use this in drivers
 *	@rx_nohandler:	nohandler dropped packets by core network on
 *			inactive devices, do not use this in drivers

 *				instead of ioctl,
 *				see <net/iw_handler.h> for details.

 *			if one wants to override the ndo_*() functions

 *			of Layer 2 headers.
 *
 *	@flags:		Interface flags (a la BSD)
 *	@priv_flags:	Like 'flags' but invisible to userspace,
 *			see if.h for the definitions

What is a Linux Kernel Module - a Big Picture ↗
Saturday' 01-Jan-2022
Learning Linux Kernel Programming is always fascinating and yet challenging. So generally you may tend to learn Kernel Module programming, since such a module can be dynamically plugged into running Linux Kernel. But this will lead to confusion, and many assume kernel source is mostly a collection of these modules. Which in reality is not. Not just that, when we say Kernel Module, its a vaguely defined term. The term Module (as we know) is nothing but a collection of APIs, bunch of variables and associated data-structures. Which may or may not be a plugable kernel module. If you ask me, I am a fan of wiring Linux Kernel Modules, which may not be necessarily a pluggable kernel module. It all boils down to the address space at which these modules function inside a monolithic Linux Kernel. Which is nothing but Linux Kernel's address space. Hence here is my detailed multi-episode Youtube video series on Linux Kernel modules, a big picture and the significance of the

Linux Kernel Programming | with or without Kernel Modules | Device Drivers ↗

When learning Linux Kernel programming, often I notice my students and viewers gets confused and they start with learning writing Linux Kernel modules. And so they develop the common misconception about Kernel Programming in general. They assume writing code in Linux Kernel means writing kernel modules. Which is absolutely not. Kernel modules are an optional choice and are part of Linux Kernel. But besides modules, Linux Kernel has lot of other mainstream code. Hence if anyone wants to be a Kernel Developer, you should be aware that sometimes you add new code via modules, sometimes without them. And if you ask me, I am not much in favor of writing Kernel modules. Instead in my code, I try to integrate and make them a part of Linux Kernel so that they all get initialized during boot time. Here is an extensive Youtube video of mine on Linux Kernel Programming, with and without Kernel Modules.
