- write a value to a location
#include <sys/ddi.h> #include <sys/sunddi.h> int ddi_poke8(dev_info_t *dip, int8_t *addr, int8_t value);
int ddi_poke16(dev_info_t *dip, int16_t *addr, int16_t value);
int ddi_poke32(dev_info_t *dip, int32_t *addr, int32_t value);
int ddi_poke64(dev_info_t *dip, int64_t *addr, int64_t value);
Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI). The ddi_pokec(), ddi_pokes(), ddi_pokel(), and ddi_poked() functions are obsolete. Use, respectively, ddi_poke8(), ddi_poke16(), ddi_poke32(), and ddi_poke64(), instead.
A pointer to the device's dev_info structure.
Virtual address of the location to be written to.
Value to be written to the location.
These routines cautiously attempt to write a value to a specified virtual address, using the parent nexus driver to assist in the process where necessary.
If the address is not valid, or the value cannot be written without an error occurring, an error code is returned.
On multiprocessing machines these routines can be extremely heavy-weight, so use the ddi_peek(9F) routines instead if possible.
The value was successfully written to the given virtual address.
An error occurred while trying to write to the location.
These functions can be called from user, interrupt, or kernel context.
The functions described in this manual page previously used symbolic names which specified their data access size; the function names have been changed so they now specify a fixed-width data size. See the following table for the new name equivalents:
