Notes

The use of the kstat_delete() function is deprecated. The function may be removed in a future release of Oracle Solaris. Use the kstat2_create() and kstat2_delete() functions instead. When calling the kstat_delete() function, the driver must not be holding that kstat's ks_lock. Otherwise, it may deadlock with a kstat reader. For more information, see the kstat2_create(9F) and kstat2_delete(9F) man pages.
