syscall kernel module declaration macro
macro declares a new syscall.
expands into a kernel module declaration with name
The rest of the arguments expected by this macro are:
- A pointer to an int which saves the offset in struct sysent where the syscall is allocated. If the location pointed to by offset holds a non 0 number it will be used if possible. If it holds 0 then one will be assigned.
- is a pointer to a structure that specifies the function implementing the
syscall and the number of arguments this function needs (see
- A pointer to the kernel module event handler function with the argument arg. Please refer to module(9) for more information.
- The argument passed to the callback functions of the evh event handler when it is called.
The syscall number assigned to the
module can be retrieved using the modstat(3) and
modfind(3) library functions in libc. The MACRO

A minimal example for a syscall module can be found in /usr/share/examples/kld/syscall/module/syscall.c.
