PHY_ATTACH_DIRECT(9)					      Network device support					      PHY_ATTACH_DIRECT(9)

phy_attach_direct - attach a network device to a given PHY device pointer SYNOPSIS
int phy_attach_direct(struct net_device * dev, struct phy_device * phydev, u32 flags, phy_interface_t interface); ARGUMENTS
dev network device to attach phydev Pointer to phy_device to attach flags PHY device's dev_flags interface PHY device's interface DESCRIPTION
Called by drivers to attach to a particular PHY device. The phy_device is found, and properly hooked up to the phy_driver. If no driver is attached, then the genphy_driver is used. The phy_device is given a ptr to the attaching device, and given a callback for link status change. The phy_device is returned to the attaching driver. COPYRIGHT

DEVCTL(4)                                                  BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                                                  DEVCTL(4)

devctl -- device event reporting and device control interface DESCRIPTION
The devctl device is used to report device events from the kernel. Future versions will allow for some device control as well. IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
This design allows only one reader for /dev/devctl. This is not desirable in the long run, but will get a lot of hair out of this implemen- tation. Maybe we should make this device a clonable device. Also note: we specifically do not attach a device to the device_t tree to avoid potential chicken and egg problems. One could argue that all of this belongs to the root node. One could also further argue that the sysctl(3) interface that we have now might more properly be an ioctl(2) interface. SIGIO support is included in the driver. However, the author is not sure that the SIGIO support is done correctly. It was copied from a driver that had SIGIO support that likely has not been tested since FreeBSD 3.4 or FreeBSD 2.2.8! The read channel for this device is used to report changes to userland in realtime. We return one record at a time. If you try to read this device a character at a time, you will lose the rest of the data. Listening programs are expected to cope. The sysctl and boot parameter hw.bus.devctl_disable is used to disable devctl when no devd(8) is running. PROTOCOL
The devctl device uses an ASCII protocol. The driver returns one record at a time to its readers. Each record is terminated with a newline. The first character of the record is the event type. Type Description ! A notify event, such as a link state change. + Device node in tree attached. - Device node in tree detached. ? Unknown device detected. Message Formats Except for the first character in the record, attach and detach messages have the same format. Tdev at parent on location Part Description T + or - dev The device name that was attached/detached. parent The device name of the parent bus that attached the device. location Bus specific location information. The nomatch messages can be used to load devices driver. If you load a device driver, then one of two things can happen. If the device driver attaches to something, you will get a device attached message. If it does not, then nothing will happen. The attach and detach messages arrive after the event. This means one cannot use the attach message to load an alternate driver. The attach message driver has already claimed this device. One cannot use the detach messages to flush data to the device. The device is already gone. SEE ALSO
