vslock, vsunlock — lock/unlock user space addresses in memory
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/proc.h> #include <vm/vm.h> #include <vm/vm_extern.h> int vslock(void *addr, size_t len); void vsunlock(void *addr, size_t len);
The vslock() and vsunlock() functions respectively lock and unlock a range of addresses belonging to the currently running process into memory. The actual amount of memory locked is a multiple of the machine's page size. The starting page number is computed by truncating addr to the nearest preceding page boundary, and by rounding up addr + len to the next page boundary. The process context to use for this operation is taken from the global variable curproc.
The vslock() function will return 0 on success, otherwise it will return one of the errors listed below.
The vslock() function will fail if: [EINVAL] The addr and len parameters specify a memory range that wraps around the end of the machine address space. [ENOMEM] The size of the specified address range exceeds the system limit on locked memory. [EFAULT] Some portion of the indicated address range is not allocated. There was an error faulting/mapping a page.
