Have question:
Is there a tool to browse one's way thru the kernel source (or
any source)? Like getting to the code for the VFS chmod and then
following the like to the FS specific chmod...etc...etc? I always
hated having to less,copy,grep,less...etc... to figure out where it goes.

Maybe there is just a better way?
