A really handy "rune" for following threads around the source code is
the following:

find . -name "*.[cSh]" | xargs grep -H [string]

If you want to include all files, you can replace the -name argument
with "-type f".

Also, look into cscope or GNU global.  They usually have good
integration into vi and emacs.

Good luck,
