     modstat — get status of kernel module


     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/module.h>

     modstat(int modid, struct module_stat *stat);


     The modstat() system call writes the info for the kernel module referred to by modid into

     struct module_stat {
             int         version;        /* set to sizeof(module_stat) */
             char        name[MAXMODNAME];
             int         refs;
             int         id;
             modspecific_t data;
     typedef union modspecific {
             int         intval;
             u_int       uintval;
             long        longval;
             u_long      ulongval;
     } modspecific_t;

     version     This field is set to the size of the structure mentioned above by the code
                 calling modstat(), and not modstat() itself.

     name        The name of the module referred to by modid.

     refs        The number of modules referenced by modid.

     id          The id of the module specified in modid.

     data        Module specific data.


     The modstat() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned
     and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.


     The information for the module referred to by modid is filled into the structure pointed to
     by stat unless:

     [ENOENT]           The module was not found (probably not loaded).

     [EINVAL]           The version specified in the version field of stat is not the proper
                        version.  You would need to rebuild world, the kernel, or your
                        application, if this error occurs, given that you did properly fill in
                        the version field.

     [EFAULT]           There was a problem copying one, some, or all of the fields into stat in
                        the copyout(9) function.
