well, the chapter 10 is a must read for device driver author.  what
exactly was your problem?  what concept did you have problem with?

in Linux, it is a matter of calling request_irq() to register your
interrupt handler.  nothing less, nothing more.  in your handler, you
just check the interrupt source (check the register), do what you need
to do.

the skeleton driver in the book is pretty concentrated about the
topic, and don't repeat previous chapter topics.  so it might be good
idea to read from chapter 1 through 10. well, then, as you said, it
might be a matter of time ;-)

please help us to help you; tell us what exactly your problem is.
