2008-06-25 13:30:29 driver as a module development taking more memory
Appalayagari Sreedhar (INDIA)
We created loadable module for WLAN. We observed that when we do "INSMOD" WLAN it took around 8 MB of available memory where as when it is built in with the kernel it took around 2 MB.
Why module way of driver developing taking more memory?

how are you measuring memory usage ? ELF sections will take up the same amount of space regardless (ignoring alignment/page padding).
