I have recently been looking over the vm_map features within the
kernel. Is this the correct way to allocate "user_land" memory from
within a new feature within the kernel?
If so are there any limits to the type of memory that can be
allocated within this system?
1- block sizes in allocation? (Multiples of some size etc...)
2- Multiple allocations? Can several seperate allocation calls be
made within the same vm... (Crud I just forgot the name of the main vm
And I guess lastly are there any specifics to be aware of in
using these things? Either good, bad, or just plain guidelines.
As always if any of this is documented anywhere I would love a
pointer to where it is stored. :)
Thanks A Million,
