SubjectSharing memory between kernel and user space
I have a question about the best way to share memory between user and
kernel space.

Let's say I have a common structure;

struct counter {
u_long interrupt_counts;
bool saw_interupt;

And I need to be able to modify these elements from both the kernel and
user space. What is the best way to allocate this??? I've tried
several methods including __get_free_pages, alloc_pages, vmalloc and so
on; and thus far, I'm just confused myself.

Can someone help me out here with a quick example of some sort???
