SYNOPSIS


.In sys/param.h
.In vm/vm.h
.In vm/vm_map.h boolean_t
.Fo vm_map_check_protection "vm_map_t map" "vm_offset_t start" "vm_offset_t end" "vm_prot_t protection"
.Fc

DESCRIPTION

The vm_map_check_protection function asserts that the target map allows the specified privilege protection over the entire address range from start to end. The region MUST be contiguous; no holes are allowed.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES

This code does not and SHOULD not check whether the contents of the region are accessible. For example, a small file may be mapped into an address space which is significantly larger in size.

RETURN VALUES

The vm_map_check_protection function returns TRUE if the privilege is allowed; if it is not allowed, or if any other error occurred, the value FALSE is returned.
