Does anyone know if there is a function to
open ( and read )a file when working in kernel
mode. Like for example there is a kernel
equivalent of printf ( printk ) and malloc (kmalloc).
Open is not there in <linux/fcntl.h> i am
also looking for kernel version of read too
which is also not there in <linux/unistd.h>.
if i try and use <fcntl.h> and <unistd.h> there
are some conflicts with the other files that
i include as a result it doesnt compile.
i am need the functions as part of a device driver
in which i need to open a file and copy the
contents into the device.
Please CC a reply to me incase you have some
solution to this problem.
thanks in advance,
