USB_FILL_INT_URB(9)					  Host-Side Data Types and Macro				       USB_FILL_INT_URB(9)

usb_fill_int_urb - macro to help initialize a interrupt urb SYNOPSIS
void usb_fill_int_urb(struct urb * urb, struct usb_device * dev, unsigned int pipe, void * transfer_buffer, int buffer_length, usb_complete_t complete_fn, void * context, int interval); ARGUMENTS
urb pointer to the urb to initialize. dev pointer to the struct usb_device for this urb. pipe the endpoint pipe transfer_buffer pointer to the transfer buffer buffer_length length of the transfer buffer complete_fn pointer to the usb_complete_t function context what to set the urb context to. interval what to set the urb interval to, encoded like the endpoint descriptor's bInterval value. DESCRIPTION
Initializes a interrupt urb with the proper information needed to submit it to a device. Note that High Speed and SuperSpeed interrupt endpoints use a logarithmic encoding of the endpoint interval, and express polling intervals in microframes (eight per millisecond) rather than in frames (one per millisecond). Wireless USB also uses the logarithmic encoding, but specifies it in units of 128us instead of 125us. For Wireless USB devices, the interval is passed through to the host controller, rather than being translated into microframe units. COPYRIGHT

usb_sg_init - initializes scatterlist-based bulk/interrupt I/O request SYNOPSIS
int usb_sg_init(struct usb_sg_request * io, struct usb_device * dev, unsigned pipe, unsigned period, struct scatterlist * sg, int nents, size_t length, gfp_t mem_flags); ARGUMENTS
io request block being initialized. until usb_sg_wait returns, treat this as a pointer to an opaque block of memory, dev the usb device that will send or receive the data pipe endpoint "pipe" used to transfer the data period polling rate for interrupt endpoints, in frames or (for high speed endpoints) microframes; ignored for bulk sg scatterlist entries nents how many entries in the scatterlist length how many bytes to send from the scatterlist, or zero to send every byte identified in the list. mem_flags SLAB_* flags affecting memory allocations in this call DESCRIPTION
Returns zero for success, else a negative errno value. This initializes a scatter/gather request, allocating resources such as I/O mappings and urb memory (except maybe memory used by USB controller drivers). The request must be issued using usb_sg_wait, which waits for the I/O to complete (or to be canceled) and then cleans up all resources allocated by usb_sg_init. The request may be canceled with usb_sg_cancel, either before or after usb_sg_wait is called. COPYRIGHT
