in your compilation. So, I'm asking my self, how your code link
the kernel via assembler? Did you jumped in some fixed location,
or you use a x86 interrupt for the system-call?
Just an accademic curiousity: in the case of the kernel module,
the stuff is managed by insmod; but your program run in the
