NAME

     vm_map_findspace — find a free region within a map

SYNOPSIS

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

     int
     vm_map_findspace(vm_map_t map, vm_offset_t start, vm_size_t length, vm_offset_t *addr);

DESCRIPTION

     The vm_map_findspace() function attempts to find a region with sufficient space in the map
     for an object of size length at the address addr.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES

     It is the caller's responsibility to obtain a lock on the map using vm_map_lock(9) before
     calling this function.

     This routine may call pmap_growkernel(9) to grow the kernel's address space, if and only if
     the mapping is being made within the kernel address space, and if insufficient space remains
     in the kernel_map.

RETURN VALUES

     The vm_map_findspace() function returns the value 0 if successful, and *addr will contain
     the first virtual address in the found region; otherwise, the value 1 is returned.
