how to make built-in module as loadable module
« on: February 14, 2011, 01:23:16 AM »
hi,
I want to know how to convert a built-in module into a loadable module. I am working on FUSE kernel module which is now built-in. so, the problem is whenever I make some changes, I have to compile the whole kernel to reflect the changes which I don't want to do it always. so, I am looking for alternative ways like making it as loadable module so that I can compile it independently without any need of compiling whole kernel. so, how can I do that? Is there any other ways, that can make work easier, other than making it as loadable one?
