GET_KERNEL_SYMS(2)		       Linux Module Support		       GET_KERNEL_SYMS(2)

       get_kernel_syms - retrieve exported kernel and module symbols

       #include <linux/module.h>

       int get_kernel_syms(struct kernel_sym *table);

       If table is NULL, get_kernel_syms returns the number of symbols available for query.  Oth-
       erwise it fills in a table of structures:

	      struct kernel_sym
		unsigned long value;
		char name[60];

       The symbols are interspersed with magic symbols of the form #module-name with  the  kernel
       having  an  empty name.	The value associated with a symbol of this form is the address at
       which the module is loaded.

       The symbols exported from each module follow their magic module tag and	the  modules  are
       returned in the reverse order they were loaded.

       Returns the number of symbols returned.	There is no possible error return.

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

       There  is  no way to indicate the size of the buffer allocated for table.  If symbols have
       been added to the kernel since the program queried for the symbol table size, memory  will
       be corrupted.

       The length of exported symbol names is limited to 59.

       Because of these limitations, this system call is deprecated in favor of query_module.
