NAME

     vm_map_find - find a free region within a map, and optionally map a
     vm_object

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/vm_map.h>

     int
     vm_map_find(vm_map_t map, vm_object_t object, vm_ooffset_t offset,
             vm_offset_t *addr, vm_size_t length, boolean_t find_space,
             vm_prot_t prot, vm_prot_t max, int cow);

DESCRIPTION

     The vm_map_find() function attempts to find a free region in the target
     map, with the given length, and will also optionally create a mapping of
     object.

     The arguments offset, prot, max, and cow are passed unchanged to
     vm_map_insert(9) when creating the mapping, if and only if a free region
     is found.

     If object is non-NULL, the reference count on the object must be
     incremented by the caller before calling this function to account for the
     new entry.

     If find_space is TRUE, the function will call vm_map_findspace(9) to
     discover a free region.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES

     This function acquires a lock on map by calling vm_map_lock(9), and holds
     it until the function returns.

     The search for a free region is defined to be first-fit, from the address
     addr onwards.

RETURN VALUES

     The vm_map_find() function returns KERN_SUCCESS if space for the mapping
     could be found and the mapping was successfully created.  If space could
     not be found in the map, KERN_NO_SPACE will be returned.  If the
     discovered range turned out to be bogus, KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS will be
     returned.
