module_depend(9) [freebsd man page]

MODULE_DEPEND(9)					   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual					  MODULE_DEPEND(9)

NAME
MODULE_DEPEND -- set kernel module dependencies SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/module.h> MODULE_DEPEND(name, moddepend, int minversion, int prefversion, int maxversion); DESCRIPTION
The MODULE_DEPEND() macro sets a dependency on another kernel module with name moddepend, which has registered its version with MODULE_VERSION(). The MODULE_DEPEND() macro provides hints to the kernel loader(8) and to the kernel linker to ensure that the named dependency is loaded prior to the existing module. It does not change or dictate the order in which modules are initialized at runtime. Three versions must be specified for moddepend: minversion The minimum version on which the current module can depend. maxversion The maximum version on which the current module can depend. prefversion The preferred version on which the current module can depend. EXAMPLES
MODULE_DEPEND(foo, bar, 1, 3, 4); SEE ALSO
DECLARE_MODULE(9), module(9), MODULE_VERSION(9) AUTHORS
