cb_ops(9S)

Name

cb_ops - character/block entry points structure

Synopsis

#include <sys/conf.h> 
#include <sys/ddi.h>
#include <sys/sunddi.h> 

Interface Level

Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI)

Description

The cb_ops structure contains all entry points for drivers that support both character and block entry points. All leaf device drivers that support direct user process access to a device should declare a cb_ops structure.

All drivers that safely allow multiple threads of execution in the driver at the same time must set the D_MP flag in the cb_flag field. See open(9E).

If the driver properly handles 64-bit offsets, it should also set the D_64BIT flag in the cb_flag field. This specifies that the driver will use the uio_loffset field of the uio(9S) structure.

If the driver returns EINTR from open(9E), it should also set the D_OPEN_RETURNS_EINTR flag in the cb_flag field. This lets the framework know that it is safe for the driver to return EINTR when waiting, to provide exclusion for a last-reference close(9E) call to complete before calling open(9E).

The mt-streams(9F) function describes other flags that can be set in the cb_flag field.

The cb_rev is the cb_ops structure revision number. This field must be set to CB_REV.

Non-STREAMS drivers should set cb_str to NULL.

The following DDI/DKI or DKI-only or DDI-only functions are provided in the character/block driver operations structure.
