Compiling with Sun Studio

Use the -D_KERNEL option to indicate that this code defines a kernel module.

Note –

Sun Studio 9 does not support 64-bit x86 architectures. Use Sun Studio 10, Sun Studio 11, or Sun Studio 12 to compile and debug drivers for 64-bit x86 architectures.

For more information on compile and link options, see the Sun Studio Man Pages and the Sun Studio 12: C User’s Guide. See the Sun Studio Information Center in the Sun Studio 12 Collection for Sun Studio books about dbx, dmake, Performance Analyzer, and other software development topics.
