create_module - create a loadable module entry
caddr_t create_module(const char *name, size_t size);
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 requires privilege.
On success, returns the kernel address at which the module will reside.
On error -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
EEXIST A module by that name already exists.
EFAULT name is outside the program's accessible address space.
EINVAL The requested size is too small even for the module header
ENOMEM The kernel could not allocate a contiguous block of memory large
enough for the module.
ENOSYS create_module() is not supported in this version of the kernel.
EPERM The caller was not privileged (did not have the CAP_SYS_MODULE
This system call is only present on Linux up until kernel 2.4; it was
removed in Linux 2.6.
create_module() is Linux-specific.
