 create_module(2) -- create a loadable module entry
    create_module attempts to create a loadable module entry and reserve the kernel memory that will be needed to hold the module. This system call is only open to the superuser.
 delete_module(2) -- delete a loadable module entry
    delete_module attempts to remove an unused loadable module entry. If name is NULL, all unused modules marked auto-clean will be removed. This system call is only open to the superuser.
