DESCRIPTION


USB devices can have multiple configurations, each with many interfaces.
Within interfaces are alternate settings, and within alternate settings
are endpoints.


Each interface within a configuration may be represented by the kernel as
a device node. Only one set of device nodes (interfaces as determined by
the configuration) can be active at one time.


Alternates to an interface represent different ways the kernel sees a
device node. Only one alternate setting within an interface can be active
(or selected) at one time. The functions presented in this man page get
or set interface or alternate setting information.


The usb_get_alt_if() function requests the device to return the current
alternate setting of the given interface. This function ignores the flags
argument and always blocks.


The usb_set_alt_if() function requests the device to set the interface
and its alternate setting as specified. Because this call changes the
current device's interface and sets the new interface's mode of operation
as seen by the system, the driver must insure that all pipes other than
the default control pipe are closed and quiescent. To avoid contending
with another driver for a different part of the device, the driver must
be bound to: the entire device, the interface-association which includes
the alternative interface, or to the interface whose number is
interface_number.


If USB_FLAGS_SLEEP is set in flags, usb_set_alt_if() blocks until
completed. Otherwise, usb_set_alt_if() returns immediately and calls the
callback handler when completed.


callback is the asynchronous callback handler and takes the following
arguments:

usb_pipe_handle_t pipe_handle

Handle of the default control pipe used to perform the request.


usb_opaque_t callback_arg

Callback_arg specified to usb_set_alt_if().


int rval

Request status.


usb_cb_flags_t callback_flags:

Status of the queueing operation. Can be:

USB_CB_NO_INFO - Callback was uneventful.

USB_CB_ASYNC_REQ_FAILED - Error queueing request.

USB_CB_NO_RESOURCES - Error allocating resources.


The usb_get_if_number() function returns the interface number, or
USB_COMBINED_NODE or USB_DEVICE_NODE node indicating that the driver is
bound to the entire device.


The usb_owns_device() function returns B_TRUE if the driver of the dip
argument owns the entire device, or B_FALSE if it owns just a particular
interface.

RETURN VALUES


For usb_get_alt_if():

USB_SUCCESS
Interface's alternate setting was successfully
obtained.


USB_INVALID_ARGS
Pointer to alternate_number and/or dip are NULL.


USB_INVALID_CONTEXT
Called from interrupt context.


USB_FAILURE
The interface number is invalid.

An access error occurred.


For usb_set_alt_if():

USB_SUCCESS
Alternate interface was successfully set.


USB_INVALID_ARGS
dip is NULL. USB_FLAGS_SLEEP is clear and callback
is NULL.


USB_INVALID_PERM
dip does not own the interface to be set.


USB_INVALID_CONTEXT
Called from interrupt context with USB_FLAGS_SLEEP
specified.


USB_INVALID_PIPE
Pipe handle is NULL, invalid, or refers to a pipe
that is closing or closed.


USB_FAILURE
The interface number and/or alternate setting are
invalid.

Pipes were open.

An access error occurred.


For usb_get_if_number():


USB_COMBINED_NODE if the driver is responsible for the entire active
device configuration. The dip doesn't correspond to an entire physical
device.


USB_DEVICE_NODE if the driver is responsible for the entire device. The
dip corresponds to an entire physical device.


interface number: otherwise.


For usb_owns_device():

B_TRUE
Driver of the dip argument owns the entire device.


B_FALSE
Driver of the dip argument owns only the current interface.


CONTEXT


The usb_get_if_number() and usb_owns_device() functions may be called
from user or kernel context.


The usb_set_alt_if() function may always be called from user or kernel
context. It may be called from interrupt context only if USB_FLAGS_SLEEP
is not set in flags. If the USB_CB_ASYNC_REQ_FAILED bit is clear in
usb_cb_flags_t, the callback, if supplied, can block because it is
executing in kernel context. Otherwise the callback cannot block. See
usb_callback_flags(9S) for more information on callbacks.


The usb_get_alt_if() function may be called from user or kernel context.

EXAMPLES


/* Change alternate setting of interface 0. Wait for completion. */
if (usb_set_alt_if(
dip, 0, new_alternate_setting_num, USB_FLAGS_SLEEP, NULL, 0) !=
USB_SUCCESS) {
cmn_err (CE_WARN,
"%s%d: Error setting alternate setting on pipe",
ddi_driver_name(dip), ddi_get_instance(dip));
}
}
