I use linux-2.4.5 and have some questions to need your help.
I try to replace some kernel functions with my own implementations.I
will explain it in the following:
where "my_func" is a function pointer defined in kernel, and "func1" is
a function(void func1(void)) implemented in kernel.And "my_func" is an
EXPORTED SYMBOL in mips_ksyms.c.
Now I want to replace "func1" with my own "func2" in a module
extern void (*my_func)(void);
my_func = func2;
where "func2" is a function (void fun2(void)) implemented in
If I do "insmod my_module.o", the kernel should run OK. In fact, it is
often met an "unhandled kernel unaligned access" or "do_page_fault"
exception and then panics.
We know "func1" should be in KSEG0(unmapped , cached) since it is
implemented in kernel space.So it's address should be 0x8XXXXXXX.And
"my_func" should also pointed to this same address before inserting
my_module.o. And "func2" should be in KSEG2(mapped, cached) since it is
implemented in module, So it's address should be 0xCXXXXXXX.After inserting
my_module.o, "my_func" should be changed to pointed to this new address in
My question is :
When "my_func" changes from KSEG0 from KSEG2, Can it cause some
Thank you very much.
