Hi everybody, I'm writing a guide about device drivers in assembly under linux. I'm using NASM. If anybody is interested here is the URL:

Great, Alberto! Couple thing seems strange to me. I don't know anything about device drivers, so perhaps it really *is* that strange...

You say:

   2.      Stack cleanup is performed by the called function.
   3.      Function name is decorated by prepending an underscore character

But that doesn't seem to be what you show...

And... your strings have got CRs in 'em. Is that normal/required for device drivers?

I'm sure I'll have more questions... Great resource. Thanks!

Best,
Frank
