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

NAME
     vm_map_insert -- insert an	object into a map

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

     int
     vm_map_insert(vm_map_t map, vm_object_t object, vm_ooffset_t offset,
	 vm_offset_t start, vm_offset_t	end, vm_prot_t prot, vm_prot_t max,
	 int cow);

DESCRIPTION
     The vm_map_insert() function inserts a mapping for	the entire vm_object
     object into the target map	map.

     The offset	argument specifies the offset into the object at which to
     begin mapping.  The object's size should match that of the	specified
     address range.

     The start and end arguments specify the bounds of the mapped object's
     window in the address space of map.

     The cow argument specifies	the flags which	should be propagated to	the
     new entry,	for example, to	indicate that this is a	copy-on-write mapping.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     This function implicitly creates a	new vm_map_entry by calling the	inter-
     nal function vm_map_entry_create().

RETURN VALUES
     The vm_map_insert() function returns KERN_SUCCESS if the mapping could be
     made successfully.

     Otherwise,	KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS will be returned if the start of the
     range could not be	found, or KERN_NO_SPACE	if the range was found to be
     part of an	existing entry or if it	overlaps the end of the	map.
