Manual Reference Pages - BUS_READ_IVAR (9)
- manipulate bus-specific device instance variables
BUS_READ_IVAR device_t dev device_t child int index uintptr_t *result
BUS_WRITE_IVAR device_t dev device_t child int index uintptr_t value
These two methods manage a bus specific set of instance variables of
a child device.
The intention is that each different type of bus
defines a set of appropriate instance variables (such as ports and
irqs for ISA bus etc.)
This information could be given to the child device as a struct but
that makes it hard for a bus to add or remove variables without
forcing an edit and recompile for all drivers which may not be
possible for vendor supplied binary drivers.
Zero is returned on success, otherwise an appropriate error is returned.
