VM_MAP_FINDSPACE(9)    FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual   VM_MAP_FINDSPACE(9)

NAME
     vm_map_findspace -- find a	free region within a map

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/vm_map.h>

     int
     vm_map_findspace(vm_map_t map, vm_offset_t	start, vm_size_t length,
	 vm_offset_t *addr);

DESCRIPTION
     The vm_map_findspace() function attempts to find a	region with sufficient
     space in the map for an object of size length at the address addr.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     It	is the caller's	responsibility to obtain a lock	on the map using
     vm_map_lock(9) before calling this	function.

     This routine may call pmap_growkernel(9) to grow the kernel's address
     space, if and only	if the mapping is being	made within the	kernel address
     space, and	if insufficient	space remains in the kernel_map.

RETURN VALUES
     The vm_map_findspace() function returns the value 0 if successful,	and
     *addr will	contain	the first virtual address in the found region; other-
     wise, the value 1 is returned.
