KLDUNLOAD(2)		  FreeBSD System Calls Manual		  KLDUNLOAD(2)

NAME
     kldunload kldunloadf -- unload kld	files

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/linker.h>

     int
     kldunload(int fileid);

     int
     kldunload(int fileid, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
     The kldunload() system call unloads a kld file from the kernel that was
     previously	linked via kldload(2).

     The kldunloadf() system call accepts an additional	flags argument,	which
     may be one	of LINKER_UNLOAD_NORMAL, giving	the same behavior as
     kldunload(), or LINKER_UNLOAD_FORCE, which	causes the unload to ignore a
     failure to	quiesce	the module.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is	returned; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno	is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS
     The file referred to by fileid is unloaded	unless:

     [EPERM]		You do not have	access to unlink the file from the
			kernel.

     [ENOENT]		The file was not found.

     [EBUSY]		You attempted to unload	a file linked by the kernel.
