Subjectdriver address space
I have a small query about kernel image organization. i am
2.4.7 kernel version.Is there any data structure in kernel which
will give
information about _all_ kernel symbols? i could get the data
which gives _exported_ symbols only. But not all symbols. Using
structure i want to access information about functions present in
a driver,
which can be used to find out address range(_start_address_ &
_end_address_) of the driver in kernel address space.
It is possible to get this information about functions in a
using to get this information into kernel can we push
content of this file into kernel image? i think this can be done
either by
putting it at specific address or appending the image. Will it be
OK to
access kernel symbols) in this way from kernel?
this cause any security or some other problems?
Or apart from this is there any other way to find out driver's
address range in the kernel?

I hope this not something totally out of context. Thank You.
