  Richard, should there be (is there?) linux-networking-faq, or can this
  be put into the linux-kernel faq ?

   That book describes BSD implementation.

   Linux code has been written completely independently, and using
   fundamentally different base structure -- instead of PCBs containing
   chains of segments, Linux has SKBs with entire segment contiguous
   in it.

   Function, and structure names are different, naturally.
