Come and dip your toes into the world of writing Linux kernel modules. At this talk, we will define our very own executable file format, and then teach the Linux kernel how to read it and run it.

Outline:

  • What goes into a Linux kernel module
  • Compiling a minimal kernel module in C
  • Requirements for defining an executable format
  • Putting it all together in code
  • Other choices, ways to improve, alternatives
