Please reply me regarding this errors.
the source code and the error file are as below.

#define MODULE
#include <linux/module.h>
#include<linux/fs.h>
#include<linux/kernel.h>
#include<linux/slab.h>
//#include<linux/ioctl.h>
//#include</usr/include/error.h>
MODULE_LICENSE("GFP_KERNEL");
#define MAJ_NUM 45
#define READ 5
#define WRITE 6
#define DEVICE_NAME "raj"

unsigned long *test;

int scull_open(struct inode *inode, struct file *file)
{
printk("In open function\n");
// MOD_INC_USE_COUNT;
return 0;
}

int scull_release(struct inode *inode, struct file *file)
{
printk("In Release function \n");
// MOD_DEC_USE_COUNT;
}



struct file_operations *f_op;
struct file_operations scull_fops = {
.open = scull_open,
.release = scull_release,
};



int init_module(void)
{
unsigned long result;
result=register_chrdev(MAJ_NUM,"raj",&f_op);
if(result <0)
{
printk("Can't get Major number %d\n",MAJ_NUM);
return result;
}
if(MAJ_NUM==0) MAJ_NUM=result;


printk("Hello \n");
test=(unsigned long *)kmalloc(1024*5,"GFP_KERNEL");
printk("test=%x",&test);
return 0;
}

void cleanup_module(void)
{
unregister_chrdev(MAJ_NUM,"raj");
printk("Cleanup Over \n");

Shouldn't there be a space in between #include and <linux/slab.h> ? - as in:
#include <linux/module.h>
This should also be fixed for the 2-nd through 6-th #include lines.
