Android insmod kernel object on boot – Stack Overflow

Iinsmod the prototype of an exported symbol in the kernel changes, either due to modification of the source or because the kernel configuration changed, this breaks compatibility with kernel modules that use that symbol.

The rest of the kernel is treated monolithically with respect to Android whether or not is it is actually a monolithic kernel, or parts of it are compiled as kernel modules. Device makers can use device tree overlays to specify fstab entries for early mounted partitions.

The current Android release recommends that all board—specific code is built and shipped as kernel modules in devices. For device tree-based platforms, board—specific device nodes should be added to the kernel device tree as overlays. Android 9 recommends all board—specific code to be built and shipped as kernel modules in devices.

While doing so requires additional, up front efforts androif time and engineering resources, it is well documented to save both time and money in the long run.

The only assumption is that the bootloader already knows how and where to load the DT blob from. The early-init event can be modified to invoke modprobe:.

That should be all you need to do, as far insmof I know. Must point to the device node representing the partition by-name. The recovery image is likely to contain a subset of the vendor modules.

Partition size is board—specific. Rahul 3 11 The modprobe utility is worth a quick mention. Early mounting partitions, VBoot 1.

How to insmod a module on every boot?

Android device kernels must enable the kernel. To make updating to newer kernel versions much easier and almost automatic, and to provide a more secure and reliable platform for ODMs to build a product with, it is strongly recommended that SoC vendors work to upstream their kernel changes and get them accepted into the main kernel.

Figure 1 below illustrates a common example of how SoC kernels get fragmented over time, across Android releases, and across ODMs. If kernel modules are being used, requirements for their placement in filesystem are as follows:.

According to Google, this works as intended. From the same file, dependencies are loaded. In addition to availability in Android boot modes, kernel modules may also be categorized by who owns them the SoC vendor or the ODM.

The following example shows device tree early mount for system and vendor partitions on Nexus 6P:. Other programs related to modules are rmmod and modinfo.
