CREATE_MODULE(2)	   Linux Programmer's Manual	      CREATE_MODULE(2)

NAME
       create_module - create a loadable module entry

SYNOPSIS
       #include <linux/module.h>

       caddr_t create_module(const char *name, size_t size);

DESCRIPTION
       Note: This system call is present only in kernels before Linux 2.6.

       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.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, returns the kernel address at which the module will reside.
       On error -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       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
	      information.

       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
	      (e.g., the kernel is version 2.6 or later).

       EPERM  The  caller  was not privileged (did not have the CAP_SYS_MODULE
	      capability).

VERSIONS
       This system call is present on Linux only up until kernel 2.4;  it  was
       removed in Linux 2.6.

CONFORMING TO
       create_module() is Linux-specific.
