|Writing Device Drivers Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
The Oracle Solaris OS provides driver developers with a comprehensive set of interfaces for accessing device memory. These interfaces are designed to shield the driver from platform-specific dependencies by handling mismatches between processor and device endianness as well as enforcing any data order dependencies the device might have. By using these interfaces, you can develop a single-source driver that runs on both the SPARC and x86 processor architectures as well as the various platforms from each respective processor family.
