MODSTAT(2) MidnightBSD System Calls Manual MODSTAT(2)

NAME

modstat — get status of kernel module

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, −lc)

SYNOPSIS

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

int

modstat(int modid, struct module_stat *stat);

DESCRIPTION

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

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 u_intval;

long longval;

u_long u_longval;

} 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.

RETURN VALUES

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.

ERRORS

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.
