SYNOPSIS
       #include <linux/module.h>

       int delete_module(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
       delete_module() attempts to remove an unused loadable module entry.  If
       name is NULL, all unused modules marked  auto-clean  will  be  removed.
       This system call requires privilege.

       On  success,  zero  is returned.  On error, -1 is returned and errno is
       set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EBUSY  The module is in use.

       EFAULT name is outside the program's accessible address space.

       EINVAL name was an empty string.

       ENOENT No module by that name exists.

       EPERM  The caller was not privileged (did not have  the  CAP_SYS_MODULE
              capability).

CONFORMING TO
