Thanks Vivek.

But still I am not able to solve the problem. Is /proc/meminfo broken? The first meminfo shows that there is ~600KB space is left and then I am trying to insert the module.

because u are running the 1st command from ur application so , some
memory is consumed by the ur process. after the error the the memory
is freed so the free memory is more after u execute the command 2nd

AFAIU, in your module , you are trying to allocate 2^5 pages ie 128 kb
contiguous physical memory , and the system is not abl eto satisfy
this request.

Thanks and Regards
