NAME

       create_module - create a loadable module entry

SYNOPSIS

       #include <linux/module.h>

       caddr_t create_module(const char *name, size_t size);

DESCRIPTION

       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 is only open to the superuser.

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

       EPERM  The user is not the superuser.

       EEXIST A module by that name already exists.

       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.

       EFAULT name is outside the program’s accessible address space.
