NAMEMODULE_DEPEND - set kernel module dependencies
SYNOPSISIn sys/param.h In sys/module.h Fn MODULE_DEPEND name moddepend int minversion int prefversion int maxversion
DESCRIPTIONThe Fn MODULE_DEPEND macro sets a dependency on another kernel module with name Fa moddepend , which has registered its version with Fn MODULE_VERSION .
The Fn 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 Fa moddepend :
- Fa minversion
- The minimum version on which the current module can depend.
- Fa maxversion
- The maximum version on which the current module can depend.
- Fa prefversion
- The preferred version on which the current module can depend.
MODULE_DEPEND(foo, bar, 1, 3, 4);
