Thank you for your reply.
According to DD3,chapter-8:
Allocating memory at boot time is a “dirty” technique, because it bypasses all memory management policies by reserving a private memory pool. This technique is inelegant
, but it is also the least prone to failure. Needless to say, a module can’t allocate memory at boot time; only drivers directly linked to the kernel can do that.
Is this the way a video adapter driver allocates memory ?
