1 What: /sys/module 2 Description: 3 The /sys/module tree consists of the following structure: 4 5 /sys/module/MODULENAME 6 The name of the module that is in the kernel. This 7 module name will always show up if the module is loaded as a 8 dynamic module. If it is built directly into the kernel, it 9 will only show up if it has a version or at least one 10 parameter. 11 12 Note: The conditions of creation in the built-in case are not 13 by design and may be removed in the future. 14 15 /sys/module/MODULENAME/parameters 16 This directory contains individual files that are each 17 individual parameters of the module that are able to be 18 changed at runtime. See the individual module 19 documentation as to the contents of these parameters and 20 what they accomplish. 21 22 Note: The individual parameter names and values are not 23 considered stable, only the fact that they will be 24 placed in this location within sysfs. See the 25 individual driver documentation for details as to the 26 stability of the different parameters. 27 28 /sys/module/MODULENAME/refcnt 29 If the module is able to be unloaded from the kernel, this file 30 will contain the current reference count of the module. 31 32 Note: If the module is built into the kernel, or if the 33 CONFIG_MODULE_UNLOAD kernel configuration value is not enabled, 34 this file will not be present.
