#include <sys/scsi/scsi.h>struct scsi_pkt *get_pktiopb(struct scsi_address *ap, caddr_t *datap, int cdblen, int statuslen, int datalen, int readflag, int (*callback);
Pointer to the target's scsi_address structure.
Pointer to the address of the packet, set by this function.
Number of bytes required for the SCSI command descriptor block (CDB).
Number of bytes required for the SCSI status area.
Number of bytes required for the data area of the SCSI command.
If non-zero, data will be transferred from the SCSI target.
Pointer to a callback function, or NULL_FUNC or SLEEP_FUNC
Pointer to a scsi_pkt(9S) structure.
get_pktiopb() allocates a scsi_pkt structure that has a small data area allocated. It is used by some SCSI commands such as REQUEST_SENSE, which involve a small amount of data and require cache-consistent memory for proper operation. It uses ddi_iopb_alloc(9F) for allocating the data area and scsi_resalloc(9F) to allocate the packet and DMA resources.
callback indicates what get_pktiopb() should do when resources are not available:
Do not wait for resources. Return a NULL pointer.
Wait indefinitely for resources.
callback points to a function which is called when resources may have become available. callback must return either 0 (indicating that it attempted to allocate resources but failed to do so again), in which case it is put back on a list to be called again later, or 1 indicating either success in allocating resources or indicating that it no longer cares for a retry.
free_pktiopb() is used for freeing the packet and its associated resources.
get_pktiopb() returns a pointer to the newly allocated scsi_pkt or a NULL pointer.
If callback is SLEEP_FUNC, then this routine may only be called from user-level code. Otherwise, it may be called from either user or interrupt level. The callback function may not block or call routines that block.
free_pktiopb() can be called from user or interrupt context.

|ATTRIBUTE TYPE||ATTRIBUTE VALUE|
The get_pktiopb() and free_pktiopb() functions are obsolete and will be discontinued in a future release. These functions have been replaced by, respectively, scsi_alloc_consistent_buf(9F) and scsi_free_consistent_buf(9F).
get_pktiopb() uses scarce resources. For this reason and its obsolescence (see above), its use is discouraged.
