SYNOPSIS


.In sys/param.h
.In sys/ucred.h
.In sys/vnode.h int VOP_VPTOCNP struct vnode *vp struct vnode **dvp struct ucred *cred char *buf int *buflen

DESCRIPTION

This translates a vnode into its component name, and writes that name to the head of the buffer specified by buf.
vp The vnode to translate.
dvp The vnode of the parent directory of vp.
cred The caller credentials.
buf The buffer into which to prepend the component name.
buflen
  The remaining size of the buffer.

The default implementation of VOP_VPTOCNP scans through vp ’s parent directory looking for a dirent with a matching file number. If vp is not a directory, then VOP_VPTOCNP returns ENOENT.

LOCKS

The vnode should be locked on entry and will still be locked on exit. The parent directory vnode will be unlocked on a successful exit. However, it will have its use count incremented.

RETURN VALUES

Zero is returned on success, otherwise an error code is returned.

ERRORS

[ENOMEM]
  The buffer was not large enough to hold the vnode’s component name.
[ENOENT]
  The vnode was not found on the file system.
