I've heard good things about O'Reilly's "Linux Device Drivers", though
you'll want to double-check to make sure the current edition covers 2.6
kernels before shelling out cash.

There are a lot of resources on the Internet for dealing with Linux
device drivers, believe it or not.  Do a Google search for "device
drivers linux" without the quotes and you'll find a couple of online
books (including an online free version of the previously mentioned
O'Reilly book) and some other references.  I can't vouch for the quality
of any of them, unfortunately.
