 Howto: build Linux kernel module

To be frank you do not need a new full source tree in order to just compile or build module against the running kernel i.e an exploded source tree is not required to build kernel driver or module. Many new admin install entire kernel tree to compile a driver.

This is essential because if you just want to compile and install driver for new hardware such as Wireless card or SCSI device etc. With this method, you will save the time, as you are not going to compile entire Linux kernel.
