PARAMETERS


providerName
The name of the provider for which data is being
retrieved.


nvl

will contain the nvlist retrieved. The caller is
responsible for freeing the returned nvlist by calling
nvlist_free(3NVPAIR).


providerType

STMF_LU_PROVIDER_TYPE or STMF_PORT_PROVIDER_TYPE.


token
A pointer to a uint64_t allocated by the caller. On
success, this will contain a token for the returned data
that can be used in a call to
stmfSetProviderDataProt(3STMF) to ensure that the data
returned in this call is not stale. If this value is
NULL, the token will be ignored.
