NAME

       request_module - try to load a kernel module

SYNOPSIS

       int request_module  (const char * fmt, ...);

ARGUMENTS

       fmt    printf style format string for the name of the module

       ...    variable arguments

DESCRIPTION

       Load  a  module using the user mode module loader. The function returns
       zero on success or a negative  errno  code  on  failure.  Note  that  a
       successful module load does not mean the module did not then unload and
       exit on an error of its own. Callers must check that the  service  they
       requested is now available not blindly invoke it.

       If module auto-loading support is disabled then this function becomes a
       no-operation.
