There is the SDK documentation which is included in the SDK zip file
available here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

These are VirtualBox internals for which one can generate doxygen output
but I don't think if we publish these. However, since it's all open
source, generating it from OSE tarball shouldn't be too difficult.
VMM stands for Virtual Machine Monitor, and R0, R3, RC, RZ are various
contexts in which the code executes. However, do remember that sometimes
it can be a bit confusing if you go purely by the doxygen comments and
not look into what the code actually does, as there might be the odd
obsolete comment or more likely, for historical reasons why something
continues to be named the way it is.
