29.Dt VM_MAP_PROTECT 9
30.Os
31.Sh NAME
32.Nm vm_map_protect
33.Nd apply protection bits to a virtual memory region
34.Sh SYNOPSIS
35.In sys/param.h
36.In vm/vm.h
37.In vm/vm_map.h
38.Ft int
39.Fo vm_map_protect
40.Fa "vm_map_t map" "vm_offset_t start" "vm_offset_t end" "vm_prot_t new_prot"
41.Fa "boolean_t set_max"
42.Fc
43.Sh DESCRIPTION
44The
45.Fn vm_map_protect
46function sets the protection bits of the address region bounded by
47.Fa start
48and
49.Fa end
50within the map
51.Fa map
52to
53.Fa new_prot .
54.Pp
55If
56.Fa set_max
57is TRUE,
58.Fa new_prot
59is treated as the new
60.Va max_protection
61setting for each underlying entry.
62Otherwise, only the
63.Va protection
64field is affected.
65.Pp
66The range MUST be contiguous, and MUST NOT contain sub-maps.
67.Sh IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
68The function acquires a lock on the
69.Fa map
70for the duration, by calling
71.Xr vm_map_lock 9 .
72.Sh RETURN VALUES
73The
74.Fn vm_map_protect
75function returns
76.Dv KERN_SUCCESS
77if the protection bits could be set successfully.
78.Pp
79If a sub-map entry was encountered in the range,
80.Dv KERN_INVALID_ARGUMENT
81is returned.
82If the value of
83.Fa new_prot
84would exceed
85.Va max_protection
86for an entry within the range,
87.Dv KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE
88is returned.
