POSIX Shared Memory w/ Kernel Module

Hello All,

I'm looking for some examples or some pointers on how to use or access POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) from the Kernel (actually a Kernel Module). I have found some examples with System V, and I understand that from a user space perspective at the code level that the semantics for Sys V and POSIX are nearly the same but I am looking for some pointers to build a a Kernel Module and a User Space Application that both use the same POSIX shared memory segment.

Any ideas?
