NAME

remap_vmalloc_range_partial - map vmalloc pages to userspace

SYNOPSIS

int remap_vmalloc_range_partial(struct vm_area_struct vma, unsigned long uaddr, void kaddr, unsigned long size);

ARGUMENTS

vma

vma to cover

uaddr

target user address to start at

kaddr

virtual address of vmalloc kernel memory

size

size of map area

RETURN

0 for success, -Exxx on failure

This function checks that kaddr is a valid vmalloc'ed area, and that it is big enough to cover the range starting at uaddr in vma. Will return failure if that criteria isn't met.
