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


NAME


ddi_btop, ddi_btopr, ddi_ptob - page size conversions

SYNOPSIS


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


unsigned long ddi_btop(dev_info_t *dip, unsigned long bytes);


unsigned long ddi_btopr(dev_info_t *dip, unsigned long bytes);


unsigned long ddi_ptob(dev_info_t *dip, unsigned long pages);


INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI).

DESCRIPTION


This set of routines use the parent nexus driver to perform conversions
in page size units.


The ddi_btop() function converts the given number of bytes to the number
of memory pages that it corresponds to, rounding down in the case that
the byte count is not a page multiple.


The ddi_btopr() function converts the given number of bytes to the number
of memory pages that it corresponds to, rounding up in the case that the
byte count is not a page multiple.


The ddi_ptob() function converts the given number of pages to the number
of bytes that it corresponds to.


Because bus nexus may possess their own hardware address translation
facilities, these routines should be used in preference to the
corresponding DDI/DKI routines btop(9F), btopr(9F), and ptob(9F), which
only deal in terms of the pagesize of the main system MMU.

RETURN VALUES


The ddi_btop() and ddi_btopr() functions return the number of
corresponding pages. ddi_ptob() returns the corresponding number of
bytes. There are no error return values.

CONTEXT


This function can be called from user, interrupt, or kernel context.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Find the size (in bytes) of one page



pagesize = ddi_ptob(dip, 1L);
