NAME

     SYSCALL_MODULE - syscall kernel module declaration macro

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/kernel.h>
     #include <sys/proc.h>
     #include <sys/module.h>
     #include <sys/sysent.h>

     SYSCALL_MODULE(name, int *offset, struct sysent *new_sysent,
             modeventhand_t evh, void *arg);

DESCRIPTION

     The SYSCALL_MODULE() macro declares a new syscall.  SYSCALL_MODULE()
     expands into a kernel module declaration named as name.

     The rest of the arguments expected by this macro are:

     offset      A pointer to an int which saves the offset in struct sysent
                 where the syscall is allocated.

     new_sysent  is a pointer to a structure that specifies the function
                 implementing the syscall and the number of arguments this
                 function needs (see

     evh         A pointer to the kernel module event handler function with
                 the argument arg.  Please refer to module(9) for more
                 information.

     arg         The argument passed to the callback functions of the evh
                 event handler when it is called.

EXAMPLES
