MODULE_DEPEND - set kernel module dependencies
MODULE_DEPEND(name, moddepend, int minversion, int prefversion,
The MODULE_DEPEND() macro sets a dependency on another kernel module with
name moddepend, which has registered its version with MODULE_VERSION().
The MODULE_DEPEND() macro provides hints to the kernel loader(8) and to
the kernel linker to ensure that the named dependency is loaded prior to
the existing module. It does not change or dictate the order in which
modules are initialized at runtime.
Three versions must be specified for moddepend:
minversion The minimum version on which the current module can depend.
maxversion The maximum version on which the current module can depend.
prefversion The preferred version on which the current module can
MODULE_DEPEND(foo, bar, 1, 3, 4);
DECLARE_MODULE(9), module(9), MODULE_VERSION(9)
