    Command:

    create_module

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <linux/module.h>
    
           caddr_t create_module(const char *name, size_t size);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Note: This system call is present only in kernels before Linux 2.6.
    
           create_module()  attempts to create a loadable module entry and reserve
           the kernel memory that will be needed to hold the module.  This  system
           call requires privilege.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On success, returns the kernel address at which the module will reside.
           On error, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EEXIST A module by that name already exists.
    
           EFAULT name is outside the program's accessible address space.
    
           EINVAL The requested size is too  small  even  for  the  module  header
                  information.
    
           ENOMEM The kernel could not allocate a contiguous block of memory large
                  enough for the module.
    
           ENOSYS create_module() is not supported in this version of  the  kernel
                  (e.g., the kernel is version 2.6 or later).
    
           EPERM  The  caller  was not privileged (did not have the CAP_SYS_MODULE
                  capability).
    
    
    

    VERSIONS

           This system call is present on Linux only up until kernel 2.4;  it  was
           removed in Linux 2.6.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           create_module() is Linux-specific.
