Typical compilation steps:

$ wget
$ tar xvf linux-x.x.x.tar.gz
$ cd linux-x.x.x
$ make menuconfig
$ make modules_prepare
$ cd /path/to/suterusu
$ make linux-x86 KDIR=/path/to/kernel

To compile against the currently running kernel (kernel headers installed):

$ make linux-x86 KDIR=/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build

If a specific toolchain is desired for cross-compilation, provide the CROSS_COMPILE variable during make:

$ make android-arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-androideabi- KDIR=/path/to/kernel

To compile the command binary:

$ gcc sock.c -o sock

File/directory hiding

At the moment, file/dir hiding only hides names on the / filesystem. Note that names are hidden, not paths. For instance, giving the name ".blah" to Suterusu will hide the name ".blah" in all directories on the filesystem.
