Linux system calls howto?


#1

Hello, I would like to understand how the kernel.syscall method must be
used.

For example, what is the syntax to make a call to the ‘mount’ syscall
defined as :
int mount(const char *source, const char *target, const char
*filesystemtype, unsigned long mountflags, const void *data)

given that mount call is syscall number 21 under linux

Thanks

syscall 21, source, target, filesystemtype, mountflags, data

You need to fill in params 1 through 5 though.
