Have you ever looked at what "make tags" gives you?
Run make tags in the kernel source dir, then open up a source file in
vim, place the cursor over some struct name or function name and press
CTRL+] and you'll be taken to the definition, you can drill down several
levels like that, and if you want to go back up one level to where you
were you simply press CTRL+t very useful when navigating the source.
