Example 1: Setting Queues This routine sets the minimum packet size, the maximum packet size, the high water mark, and the low water mark for the read and write queues of a given module or driver. It is passed either one of the queues. This could be used if a module or driver wished to update its queue parameters dynamically. 1 void 2 set_q_params(q, min, max, hi, lo) 3 queue_t *q; 4 short min; 5 short max; 6 ushort_t hi; 7 ushort_t lo; 8 { 9 q->q_minpsz = min; 10 q->q_maxpsz = max; 11 q->q_hiwat = hi; 12 q->q_lowat = lo; 13 OTHERQ(q)->q_minpsz = min; 14 OTHERQ(q)->q_maxpsz = max; 15 OTHERQ(q)->q_hiwat = hi; 16 OTHERQ(q)->q_lowat = lo; 17 } SEE ALSO
