Can anyone recommend please a good book/s on Android Kernel
Development? I can only find books on Application development but none
on Kernel development. I am particularly interested in how Android
applications interface with the Linux Kernel.

 You know that the kernel is Linux, so the first thing to look at is some
good books and / or sites for Linux kernel.

For applications, the books are for java developments ( mostly), so you can
always look at delvik virtual machine docs to dig deep, but that would not
help you for linux side of it.

For linux kernel modification and configurations, learn how to use the git /
repo, and how to configure the kernel, then try packaging it so that you can
upload to a real machine. The openmoko free runner group is you best choice,
since it does have reference platform, and people are actively working. They
also have built binaries that you can try to load onto a phone ...

1. Can an Activity pause() rather than finish()?

I see no means by which my activity can pop itself off the activity
stack to return the user to the one he was using before it was
invoked.  Is there one?

My purpose is that my app has some data structures built from data
provider queries that take 5-15 seconds to assemble and I don't want a
lot of latency if it is used in a few one-shot purposes in rapid
succession.  I'm more than willing to let the system ask my app to
die, but I'd like to keep warmed and ready otherwise.

Thanks in advance.
