Those are questions about Linux, not specifically about Fedora. You'd
probably have better luck doing your research on the Linux kernel, as
-- to a first approximation -- Fedora is simply a distro that packages
the kernel with a lot of other stuff which doesn't affect your
research. There is a wealth of material on Linux kernel design out
there, including several books and a huge amount of mailing-list stuff
(which you would probably drown in).
