MODSTAT(2)                FreeBSD System Calls Manual               MODSTAT(2)

NAME
     modstat - get status of kernel module

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     modstat(int modid, struct module_stat *stat);

DESCRIPTION
     The modstat() system call writes the info for the kernel module referred
     to by modid into stat.

     struct module_stat {
             int         version;        /* set to sizeof(module_stat) */
             char        name[MAXMODNAME];
             int         refs;
             int         id;
             modspecific_t data;
     };
     typedef union modspecific {
             int         intval;
             u_int       uintval;
             long        longval;
             u_long      ulongval;
     } modspecific_t;

     version     This field is set to the size of the structure mentioned
                 above by the code calling modstat(), and not modstat()
                 itself.

     name        The name of the module referred to by modid.

     refs        The number of modules referenced by modid.

     id          The id of the module specified in modid.

     data        Module specific data.

RETURN VALUES
     The modstat() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS
     The information for the module referred to by modid is filled into the
     structure pointed to by stat unless:

     [ENOENT]           The module was not found (probably not loaded).

     [EINVAL]           The version specified in the version field of stat is
                        not the proper version.  You would need to rebuild
                        world, the kernel, or your application, if this error
                        occurs, given that you did properly fill in the
                        version field.

     [EFAULT]           There was a problem copying one, some, or all of the
                        fields into stat in the copyout(9) function.
