NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     DEV_MODULE -- device driver module declaration macro

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/kernel.h>
     #include <sys/module.h>
     #include <sys/conf.h>

     DEV_MODULE(name, modeventhand_t evh, void *arg);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The DEV_MODULE() macro declares a device driver kernel module.  It fills
     in a moduledata_t structure and then calls DECLARE_MODULE() with the correct
 args, where name is the name of the module and evh (with its argument
 arg) is the event handler for the module (refer to DECLARE_MODULE(9)
     for more information).  The event handler is supposed to create the
     device with make_dev() on load and to destroy it when it is unloaded
     using destroy_dev().

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/module.h>
     #include <sys/conf.h>

     static struct cdevsw foo_devsw = { ... };

     static dev_t sdev;

     static int
     foo_load(module_t mod, int cmd, void *arg)
	 int err = 0;

	 switch (cmd) {
	 case MOD_LOAD:
	     sdev = make_dev(&foo_devsw, 0, UID_ROOT, GID_WHEEL, 0600, "foo");
	     break;	     /* Success*/

	 case MOD_UNLOAD:
	     break;	     /* Success*/

	     err = EINVAL;


     DEV_MODULE(foo, foo_load, NULL);
