Seems to be some diverity of opinion here. I personally  use two:
grep "0x300" `find /usr/src/linux -name \*.c`
In this case this is likely to create too long a commandline, so plan B
ind /usr/src/linux -name \*.c -exec grep "0x300" mm '{}' ';'

The quoted curlies get replaced with the file name. Quoted semi is required
to tell fine "here's the end of the command." It's to stupid to accept

The mm is there so grep has a list of files: makes it name the files
containing matches.

You can also use "-type f" to select files (not dirs) -perms for
permissions and lots of other things.

Quoting curlies and semis had me stumped for ages: couldn't see it
mentioned in the docs at all.
