I don't think he does. There's no "mount xinu" book as far as I
can tell. The original Xinu book came out twenty years ago, and
(IIRC) about fifteen years ago it was revised and split into
two volumes. It's been out of print for a long, long time, but
you can still get paperback on-demand laser-printed "facsimile"
versions for $90.

The original poster didn't mention they were new to OS principles. I'd not
recommend Labrousse's book for an OS novice. The original poster only mentioned
something on RTOS.
