DDI_MMAP_GET_MODEL(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers DDI_MMAP_GET_MODEL(9F)


NAME


ddi_mmap_get_model - return data model type of current thread

SYNOPSIS


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


uint_t ddi_mmap_get_model(void);


INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI).

DESCRIPTION


ddi_mmap_get_model() returns the C Language Type Model which the current
thread expects. ddi_mmap_get_model() is used in combination with
ddi_model_convert_from(9F) in the mmap(9E) driver entry point to
determine whether there is a data model mismatch between the current
thread and the device driver. The device driver might have to adjust the
shape of data structures before exporting them to a user thread which
supports a different data model.

RETURN VALUES


DDI_MODEL_ILP32
Current thread expects 32-bit (ILP32) semantics.


DDI_MODEL_LP64
Current thread expects 64-bit (LP64) semantics.


DDI_FAILURE
The ddi_mmap_get_model() function was not called from
the mmap(9E) entry point.


CONTEXT


The ddi_mmap_get_model() function can only be called from the mmap(9E)
driver entry point.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: : Using ddi_mmap_get_model()




The following is an example of the mmap(9E) entry point and how to
support 32-bit and 64-bit applications with the same device driver.


struct data32 {
int len;
caddr32_t addr;
};

struct data {
int len;
caddr_t addr;
};
xxmmap(dev_t dev, off_t off, int prot) {
struct data dtc; /* a local copy for clash resolution */
struct data *dp = (struct data *)shared_area;

switch (ddi_model_convert_from(ddi_mmap_get_model())) {
case DDI_MODEL_ILP32:
{
struct data32 *da32p;

da32p = (struct data32 *)shared_area;
dp = &dtc;
dp->len = da32p->len;
dp->address = da32->address;
break;
}
case DDI_MODEL_NONE:
break;
}
/* continues along using dp */
...
}
