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

NAME


ddi_prop_get_int, ddi_prop_get_int64 - lookup integer property

SYNOPSIS


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


int ddi_prop_get_int(dev_t match_dev, dev_info_t *dip, uint_t flags,
char *name, int defvalue);


int64_t ddi_prop_get_int64(dev_t match_dev, dev_info_t *dip, uint_t flags,
char *name, int64_t defvalue);


PARAMETERS


match_dev
Device number associated with property or DDI_DEV_T_ANY.


dip
Pointer to the device info node of device whose property
list should be searched.


flags
Possible flag values are some combination of:

DDI_PROP_DONTPASS
Do not pass request to parent device
information node if property not found.


DDI_PROP_NOTPROM
Do not look at PROM properties (ignored
on platforms that do not support PROM
properties).


name
String containing the name of the property.


defvalue
An integer value that is returned if the property cannot be
found.


INTERFACE LEVEL


illumos DDI specific (illumos DDI).

DESCRIPTION


The ddi_prop_get_int() and ddi_prop_get_int64() functions search for an
integer property and, if found, returns the value of the property.


Properties are searched for based on the dip, name, match_dev, and the
type of the data (integer). The property search order is as follows:

1. Search software properties created by the driver.

2. Search the software properties created by the system (or nexus
nodes in the device info tree).

3. Search the driver global properties list.

4. If DDI_PROP_NOTPROM is not set, search the PROM properties (if
they exist).

5. If DDI_PROP_DONTPASS is not set, pass this request to the
parent device information node.

6. Return defvalue.


Usually, the match_dev argument should be set to the actual device number
that this property is associated with. However, if the match_dev argument
is DDI_DEV_T_ANY, then ddi_prop_get_int() and ddi_prop_get_int() will
match the request regardless of the match_dev the property was created
with. If a property was created with match_dev set to DDI_DEV_T_NONE,
then the only way to look up this property is with a match_dev set to
DDI_DEV_T_ANY. PROM properties are always created with match_dev set to
DDI_DEV_T_NONE.


name must always be set to the name of the property being looked up.


The return value of the routine is the value of the property. If the
property is not found, the argument defvalue is returned as the value of
the property.


ddi_prop_get_int64() will not search the PROM for 64-bit property values.

RETURN VALUES


ddi_prop_get_int() and ddi_prop_get_int64() return the value of the
property. If the property is not found, the argument defvalue is
returned. If the property is found, but cannot be decoded into an int or
an int64, then DDI_PROP_NOT_FOUND is returned.

CONTEXT


ddi_prop_get_int() and ddi_prop_get_int64() can be called from user or
kernel context.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Using ddi_prop_get_int()




The following example demonstrates the use of ddi_prop_get_int().


/*
* Get the value of the integer "width" property, using
* our own default if no such property exists
*/
width = ddi_prop_get_int(xx_dev, xx_dip, 0, "width",
XX_DEFAULT_WIDTH);
