how to mmap in kernel module
I want to mmap a file from kernel module. I tried using do_mmap it works but only when i do mmap and access memory in same module.
I want to map a memroy in one module and then will call a function( which access this pointer where memory is mapped) from another module.
Now i have 2 modules first say mmap_mod.c and second say tempmod.c
in mmap_mod.c i call do_mmap in init module and take address in a pointer say mem_ptr. Now same module has another function say get_param, this function just access mem_ptr and and print its content. I have exported this function so i can access it from other module.
Now in tempmod.c i just call this get_param function (exported from mmap_mod.c) and expect data in mmaped region to get printed.
it this case it prints kernel stack and gives error "Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual memory" It fails where i try to access mem_ptr.
same thing if i do mmap in get_param then everything works fine.
I dont know why this is happening.
am i doing something wrong? or does any one have some other solution if yes please help me out.
