I have a network kernel module that I am trying to debug.

It is trying to query the file information for a socket that a userland progrm has opened.
So it is accessing current->files and getting back 0x0(null).

This seems to work on a non xen kernel.

It has been quite a while since I have done any kernel hacking so I would not be supprised if I am missing something obvious.

I believe the module is compiling correctly. It loads correctly and at least some of the information pointed to by current-> is correct.

The calling application has got a bunch of file handles open so there should be something in current->files.

Any help,pointers or even "you idiot look here" would be greatly appreciated.
