NAME

devmap_contextmgt - driver callback function for context management  

SYNOPSIS

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

int devmap_contextmgt(devmap_cookie_t dhp, void *pvtp, offset_t off, size_t len, uint_t type, uint_t rw);  

INTERFACE LEVEL

Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI).  

ARGUMENTS

dhp An opaque mapping handle that the system uses to describe the mapping.

pvtp Driver private mapping data.

off User offset within the logical device memory at which the access begins.

len Length (in bytes) of the memory being accessed.

type Type of access operation. Possible values are:

DEVMAP_ACCESS Memory access.

DEVMAP_LOCK Lock the memory being accessed.

DEVMAP_UNLOCK Unlock the memory being accessed.

rw Direction of access. Possible values are:

DEVMAP_READ Read access attempted.

DEVMAP_WRITE Write access attempted.

 

DESCRIPTION

devmap_contextmgt() is a driver-supplied function that performs device context switching on a mapping. Device drivers pass devmap_contextmgt() as an argument to devmap_do_ctxmgt(9F) in the devmap_access(9E) entry point. The system will call devmap_contextmgt() when memory is accessed. The system expects
 devmap_contextmgt() to load the memory address translations of the mapping by calling devmap_load(9F) before returning.

dhp uniquely identifies the mapping and is used as an argument to devmap_load(9F) to validate the mapping. off and len define the range to be affected by the operations in devmap_contextmgt().

The driver must check if there is already a mapping established at off that needs to be unloaded. If a mapping exists at off, devmap_contextmgt() must call devmap_unload(9F) on the current mapping. devmap_unload(9F) must be followed by devmap_load() on the mapping that generated this call to devmap_contextmgt(). devmap_unload(9F) unloads the current mapping so that a call to devmap_access(9E), which causes the system to call devmap_contextmgt(), will be generated the next time the mapping is accessed.

pvtp is a pointer to the driver's private mapping data that was allocated and initialized in the devmap_map(9E) entry point. type defines the type of operation that device drivers should perform on the memory object. If type is either DEVMAP_LOCK or DEVMAP_UNLOCK, the length passed to either devmap_unload(9F) or devmap_load(9F) must be same as len. rw specifies the access direction on the memory object.

A non-zero return value from devmap_contextmgt() will be returned to devmap_access(9E) and will cause the corresponding operation to fail. The failure may result in a SIGSEGV or SIGBUS signal being delivered to the process.  

RETURN VALUES

0 Successful completion.

Non-zero An error occurred.

 

EXAMPLES

Example 1: managing a device context

The following shows an example of managing a device context.

struct xxcontext cur_ctx;
static int
xxdevmap_contextmgt(devmap_cookie_t dhp, void *pvtp, offset_t off,
        size_t len, uint_t type, uint_t rw)
{
    devmap_cookie_t cur_dhp;
    struct xxpvtdata *p;
    struct xxpvtdata *pvp = (struct xxpvtdata *)pvtp;
    struct xx_softc  *softc = pvp->softc;
    int    err;

    mutex_enter(&softc->mutex);

    /*
     * invalidate the translations of current context before
     * switching context.
     */
    if (cur_ctx != NULL && cur_ctx != pvp->ctx) {
        p = cur_ctx->pvt;
        cur_dhp = p->dhp;
        if ((err = devmap_unload(cur_dhp, off, len)) != 0)
            return (err);
    }
    /* Switch device context - device dependent*/
    ...
    /* Make handle the new current mapping */
    cur_ctx = pvp->ctx;

    /*
     * Load the address translations of the calling context.
     */
    err = devmap_load(pvp->dhp, off, len, type, rw);

    mutex_exit(&softc->mutex);

    return (err);
}
