|pmem: A Utility for Accessing Physical
This module provides User Space applications with read access ot their
page tables. This module should not be installed with full permissions
on a production system because of security and safety. A User Space
application can use mmap()
and ioctl() on the module's
created character device to resolve what physical memory is associated
with the application's virtual addresses. The module can also request
specific pages only if that
page is not being used and is on the kernel's list of free pages.
