Building modules in MODULAR world (vs. as LKMs)
I'm working on a USB driver which so far I've been building as an
LKM; it looks from the sample module in sys/modules/example that
the only difference between the MODULAR module and an LKM is the
magic macros that get used (and presumably tools used to load/
unload/frob the module(s)).
However, it also looks like all the LKM magic for hooking various
types of modules into the right kernel data structures (in my case
I want a LKM_DRV, so it hooks into the config data) is no longer
there. Is this merely a "haven't gotten around to implementing
it" issue, or is the plan to force all that into the module itself?
Also, is there a README on the new module tools etc.? Was that
info in Andrew's original email on the new module system?
Time is an illusion; lunchtime, doubly so. |/\/\| Rafal Boni
