       create_module - create a loadable module entry

       #include <linux/module.h>

       caddr_t create_module(const char *name, size_t size);

       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.

       On success, returns the kernel address at which the module will reside.	On  error  -1  is
       returned and errno is set appropriately.

       EPERM  The user is not the superuser.

       EEXIST A module by that name already exists.

       EINVAL The requested size is too small even for the module header information.

       ENOMEM The  kernel  could  not  allocate a contiguous block of memory large enough for the

       EFAULT name is outside the program's accessible address space.

       init_module(2), delete_module(2), query_module(2).
