I would recommend a good book to fully describe these. I like "Linux
Core Kernel Commentary" by Scott Maxwell for describing what is going on
in the kernel.

A simple email would not give these questions justice. And you might
want to look at the linux kernel source for an even better explanation
of what these functions are doing.

Good luck, and remember the GPL license on the stack :)
