Example 11. The diagram illustrating invoking a system call in Figure 10-1 on page 400 of "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition. This diagram illustrates A3, A4, A5, A6 and A7.

Example 12. The diagram illustrating the flow diagram of the page fault handler in Figure 9-5 on page 378 of "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition. This diagram illustrates A5 and A6.

Example 13. The diagram illustrating kernel components affected by a block device operation in Figure 14-1 on page 561 of "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition. This diagram illustrates A4 and A5.

Example 14. The diagram illustrating linking the block device descriptors with the other structures of the block subsystem in Figure 14-3 on page 587 of "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition. This diagram illustrates A1, A4 and A5.

Example 15. The diagram illustrating the runqueue structure and the two sets of runnable processes in Figure 7-1 on page 268 of "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition. This diagram illustrates A1, A2 and A4.

All of the diagrams in the book "Understanding the Linux Kernel" 3rd Edition are good examples of different types of diagrams that can help readers understand various aspects of how the various subsystems of the Linux kernel that provide some basic kernel functionality works.
