Linking in a LKM to user space in an Eclipse project build

I have written a PCI LKM device driver that compiles and loads correctly via #insmod libfoo.ko. When # dmesg | less is run I get good results and no errors in the log.

The LKM header file is visible in the eclipse workspace.

The question now becomes how do I attach (link) this loaded LKM in a eclipse project so that the LKM driver functions are visable?

A (loaded) kernel module is an extension (a part) of the kernel. You can't link it to anything in userspace.

If you want to talk to it (from userspace) use /proc or (preferred these days) /sysfs
