USB_INTERFACE_ID(9)					      Kernel Mode Gadget API					       USB_INTERFACE_ID(9)

usb_interface_id - allocate an unused interface ID SYNOPSIS
int usb_interface_id(struct usb_configuration * config, struct usb_function * function); ARGUMENTS
config configuration associated with the interface function function handling the interface CONTEXT
single threaded during gadget setup DESCRIPTION
usb_interface_id is called from usb_function.bind callbacks to allocate new interface IDs. The function driver will then store that ID in interface, association, CDC union, and other descriptors. It will also handle any control requests targeted at that interface, particularly changing its altsetting via set_alt. There may also be class-specific or vendor-specific requests to handle. All interface identifier should be allocated using this routine, to ensure that for example different functions don't wrongly assign different meanings to the same identifier. Note that since interface identifiers are configuration-specific, functions used in more than one configuration (or more than once in a given configuration) need multiple versions of the relevant descriptors. Returns the interface ID which was allocated; or -ENODEV if no more interface IDs can be allocated. AUTHOR

struct_usb_configuration - represents one gadget configuration SYNOPSIS
struct usb_configuration { const char * label; struct usb_gadget_strings ** strings; const struct usb_descriptor_header ** descriptors; void (* unbind) (struct usb_configuration *); int (* setup) (struct usb_configuration *,const struct usb_ctrlrequest *); u8 bConfigurationValue; u8 iConfiguration; u8 bmAttributes; u16 MaxPower; struct usb_composite_dev * cdev; }; MEMBERS
label For diagnostics, describes the configuration. strings Tables of strings, keyed by identifiers assigned during bind() and by language IDs provided in control requests. descriptors Table of descriptors preceding all function descriptors. Examples include OTG and vendor-specific descriptors. unbind Reverses bind; called as a side effect of unregistering the driver which added this configuration. setup Used to delegate control requests that aren't handled by standard device infrastructure or directed at a specific interface. bConfigurationValue Copied into configuration descriptor. iConfiguration Copied into configuration descriptor. bmAttributes Copied into configuration descriptor. MaxPower Power consumtion in mA. Used to compute bMaxPower in the configuration descriptor after considering the bus speed. cdev assigned by usb_add_config() before calling bind(); this is the device associated with this configuration. DESCRIPTION
Configurations are building blocks for gadget drivers structured around function drivers. Simple USB gadgets require only one function and one configuration, and handle dual-speed hardware by always providing the same functionality. Slightly more complex gadgets may have more than one single-function configuration at a given speed; or have configurations that only work at one speed. Composite devices are, by definition, ones with configurations which include more than one function. The lifecycle of a usb_configuration includes allocation, initialization of the fields described above, and calling usb_add_config() to set up internal data and bind it to a specific device. The configuration's bind() method is then used to initialize all the functions and then call usb_add_function() for them. Those functions would normally be independent of each other, but that's not mandatory. CDC WMC devices are an example where functions often depend on other functions, with some functions subsidiary to others. Such interdependency may be managed in any way, so long as all of the descriptors complete by the time the composite driver returns from its bind routine. AUTHOR
