DEVICE_GET_IVARS(9) MidnightBSD Kernel Developer’s Manual DEVICE_GET_IVARS(9)

NAME

device_get_ivars, device_set_ivars — access bus private variables

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/bus.h>

void *

device_get_ivars(device_t dev);

void

device_set_ivars(device_t dev, void *ivar);

DESCRIPTION

The device_get_ivars() function returns the bus-specific instance variables of a device.

The device_set_ivars() function sets the bus-specific instance variables of a device.

Typically, only bus drivers will use these functions. The kernel assumes that the bus driver will manage this memory, and no automatic memory allocation or deallocation happens. Client drivers should access ivars through the BUS_READ_IVAR(9) interface instead.
