Java Unix linked-list placement

Hi, I am programming in kernel, and I want to use a double linked list that holds infos that every process could access and modify THIS list. So, I suppose it is a 'global' variable since every process(thread) can reach it, I am wondering where to put it? by changing some of the kernel files?

I am not sure why you want to modify the kernel sources. If you just want to share information between processes you can use shared memory. See the shmget(), shmat(), mmap(), etc. system calls for information about how shared memory works.

I hope this helps.
