problem to print source address and destination address

Please look my code below

#include <linux/module.h>
#include <linux/netdevice.h>
#include <linux/skbuff.h>
#include <linux/ip.h>
#include <linux/spinlock.h>
#include <linux/icmp.h>
#include <linux/udp.h>
#include <linux/tcp.h>
#include <linux/netfilter_ipv4/ip_tables.h>

int init_module(struct sk_buff *skb)
struct iphdr *iph;
int i;
printk("SRC : %u.%u.%u.%u \n",NIPQUAD(iph->saddr));
printk("DST : %u.%u.%u.%u \n",NIPQUAD(iph->daddr));
return 0;

void cleanup_module()

That code print source & destination address in /var/log/message below


I don't understand ,what is ip ? and Where it come from ?

 struct iphdr *iph;
/* ... */
printk("SRC : %u.%u.%u.%u \n",NIPQUAD(iph->saddr));
I'm not familiar with programming af kernel modules, but seems to me that iph is a dangling pointer. So you are syslogging random data from an unknown place in memory.
