SYNOPSIS


.In sys/param.h
.In sys/conf.h
typedef void d_priv_dtor_t(void *data);

int devfs_get_cdevpriv void **datap int devfs_set_cdevpriv void *priv d_priv_dtor_t *dtr void devfs_clear_cdevpriv void

DESCRIPTION

The devfs_xxx_cdevpriv family of functions allows the cdev driver methods to associate some driver-specific data with each user process open(2) of the device special file. Currently, functioning of these functions is restricted to the context of the cdevsw switch method calls performed as devfs(5) operations in response to system calls that use filedescriptors.

The devfs_set_cdevpriv function associates a data pointed by priv with current calling context (filedescriptor). The data may be retrieved later, possibly from another call performed on this filedescriptor, by the devfs_get_cdevpriv function. The devfs_clear_cdevpriv disassociates previously attached data from context. Immediately after devfs_clear_cdevpriv finished operating, the dtr callback is called, with private data supplied data argument. The devfs_clear_cdevpriv function will be also be called if the open callback function returns an error code.

On the last filedescriptor close, system automatically arranges devfs_clear_cdevpriv call.

If successful, the functions return 0.

The function devfs_set_cdevpriv returns the following values on error:
[ENOENT]
  The current call is not associated with some filedescriptor.
[EBUSY]
  The private driver data is already associated with current filedescriptor.

The function devfs_get_cdevpriv returns the following values on error:
[EBADF]
  The current call is not associated with some filedescriptor.
[ENOENT]
  The private driver data was not associated with current filedescriptor, or devfs_clear_cdevpriv was called.
