fsetown, fgetown, fownsignal -- file descriptor owner handling functions
fsetown(struct lwp *l, pid_t *pgid, int cmd, const void *data);
fgetown(struct lwp *l, pid_t pgid, int cmd, void *data);
fownsignal(pid_t pgid, int signo, int code, int band, void *fdescdata);
These functions handle file descriptor owner related ioctls and related signal delivery. Device drivers and other parts of the kernel call
these functions from ioctl entry functions or I/O notification functions.
fsetown() sets the owner of file. cmd is an ioctl command, one of SIOCSPGRP, FIOSETOWN, and TIOCSPGRP. data is interpreted as a pointer to
a signed integer, the integer being the ID of the owner. The cmd determines how exactly data should be interpreted. If cmd is TIOCSPGRP,
the ID needs to be positive and is interpreted as process group ID. For SIOCSPGRP and FIOSETOWN, the passed ID is the process ID if posi-
tive, or the process group ID if negative.
fgetown() returns the current owner of the file. cmd is an ioctl command, one of SIOCGPGRP, FIOGETOWN, and TIOCGPGRP. data is interpreted
as a pointer to a signed integer, and the value is set according to the passed cmd. For TIOCGPGRP, the returned data value is positive
process group ID if the owner is the process group, or negative process ID if the owner is a process. For other ioctls, the returned value
is the positive process ID if the owner is a process, or the negative process group ID if the owner is a process group.
fownsignal() schedules the signo signal to be sent to the current file descriptor owner. The signals typically used with this function are
SIGIO and SIGURG. The code and band arguments are sent along with the signal as additional signal specific information if SA_SIGINFO is
activated. If the information is not available from the context of the fownsignal() call, these should be passed as zero. fdescdata is used
to lookup the file descriptor for SA_SIGINFO signals. If it is specified, the file descriptor number is sent along with the signal as addi-
tional signal specific information. If file descriptor data pointer is not available in the context of the fownsignal() call, NULL should be
Note that a fcntl(2) F_SETOWN request is translated by the kernel to a FIOSETOWN ioctl, and F_GETOWN is translated to FIOGETOWN. This is
done transparently by generic code, before the device- or subsystem-specific ioctl entry function is called.

These kernel functions appeared in NetBSD 2.0.
