input_register_handle - register a new input handle SYNOPSIS
int input_register_handle(struct input_handle * handle); ARGUMENTS
handle handle to register DESCRIPTION
This function puts a new input handle onto device's and handler's lists so that events can flow through it once it is opened using input_open_device. This function is supposed to be called from handler's connect method. COPYRIGHT

Used by event handlers to estimate size of the buffer needed to hold events. keycodemax size of keycode table keycodesize size of elements in keycode table keycode map of scancodes to keycodes for this device setkeycode optional method to alter current keymap, used to implement sparse keymaps. If not supplied default mechanism will be used. The method is being called while holding event_lock and thus must not sleep getkeycode optional legacy method to retrieve current keymap. ff force feedback structure associated with the device if device supports force feedback effects repeat_key stores key code of the last key pressed; used to implement software autorepeat timer timer for software autorepeat rep[REP_CNT] current values for autorepeat parameters (delay, rate) mt pointer to multitouch state absinfo array of struct input_absinfo elements holding information about absolute axes (current value, min, max, flat, fuzz, resolution) key[BITS_TO_LONGS(KEY_CNT)] reflects current state of device's keys/buttons led[BITS_TO_LONGS(LED_CNT)] reflects current state of device's LEDs snd[BITS_TO_LONGS(SND_CNT)] reflects current state of sound effects sw[BITS_TO_LONGS(SW_CNT)] reflects current state of device's switches open this method is called when the very first user calls input_open_device. The driver must prepare the device to start generating events (start polling thread, request an IRQ, submit URB, etc.) close this method is called when the very last user calls input_close_device. flush purges the device. Most commonly used to get rid of force feedback effects loaded into the device when disconnecting from it event event handler for events sent _to_ the device, like EV_LED or EV_SND. The device is expected to carry out the requested action (turn on a LED, play sound, etc.) The call is protected by event_lock and must not sleep grab input handle that currently has the device grabbed (via EVIOCGRAB ioctl). When a handle grabs a device it becomes sole recipient for all input events coming from the device event_lock this spinlock is is taken when input core receives and processes a new event for the device (in input_event). Code that accesses and/or modifies parameters of a device (such as keymap or absmin, absmax, absfuzz, etc.) after device has been registered with input core must take this lock. mutex serializes calls to open, close and flush methods users stores number of users (input handlers) that opened this device. It is used by input_open_device and input_close_device to make sure that dev->open is only called when the first user opens device and dev->close is called when the very last user closes the device going_away marks devices that are in a middle of unregistering and causes input_open_device*() fail with -ENODEV. dev driver model's view of this device h_list list of input handles associated with the device. When accessing the list dev->mutex must be held node used to place the device onto input_dev_list num_vals number of values queued in the current frame max_vals maximum number of values queued in a frame vals array of values queued in the current frame devres_managed indicates that devices is managed with devres framework and needs not be explicitly unregistered or freed.
