I am about to start on writing a linux device driver.  What books are
recommended?  There are some books that are a few years old now, that deal
with 2.4 kernel.  What would be useful for a relatively recent kernel?

Recent revisions of "Linux Device Drivers". You may wish to address such
questions to Google in the future.

LDD3 covers the 2.6.10 kernel:

That's still on the old side at this point, of course, but it's a far
cry from 2.4.

I think he is also looking for ones that are good, not just what is
available.

Greg Kroah-Hartman had a book written on Kernel Device Drivers.  get the
latest edition of that.

More info on his web page on writing device drivers, with examples.
