NAME
sata_link_debounce - debounce SATA phy status SYNOPSIS
int sata_link_debounce(struct ata_link * link, const unsigned long * params, unsigned long deadline); ARGUMENTS
link ATA link to debounce SATA phy status for params timing parameters { interval, duratinon, timeout } in msec deadline deadline jiffies for the operation DESCRIPTION
Make sure SStatus of link reaches stable state, determined by holding the same value where DET is not 1 for duration polled every interval, before timeout. Timeout constraints the beginning of the stable state. Because DET gets stuck at 1 on some controllers after hot unplugging, this functions waits until timeout then returns 0 if DET is stable at 1. timeout is further limited by deadline. The sooner of the two is used. LOCKING
Kernel thread context (may sleep) RETURNS
0 on success, -errno on failure. AUTHOR

NAME
Mail::SpamAssassin::Timeout - safe, reliable timeouts in perl SYNOPSIS
# non-timeout code... my $t = Mail::SpamAssassin::Timeout->new({ secs => 5, deadline => $when }); $t->run(sub { # code to run with a 5-second timeout... }); if ($t->timed_out()) { # do something... } # more non-timeout code... DESCRIPTION
This module provides a safe, reliable and clean API to provide alarm(2)-based timeouts for perl code. Note that $SIG{ALRM} is used to provide the timeout, so this will not interrupt out-of-control regular expression matches. Nested timeouts are supported. PUBLIC METHODS
my $t = Mail::SpamAssassin::Timeout->new({ ... options ... }); Constructor. Options include: secs => $seconds time interval, in seconds. Optional; if neither "secs" nor "deadline" is specified, no timeouts will be applied. deadline => $unix_timestamp Unix timestamp (seconds since epoch) when a timeout is reached in the latest. Optional; if neither secs nor deadline is specified, no timeouts will be applied. If both are specified, the shorter interval of the two prevails. $t->run($coderef) Run a code reference within the currently-defined timeout. The timeout is as defined by the secs and deadline parameters to the constructor. Returns whatever the subroutine returns, or "undef" on timeout. If the timer times out, "$t-<gt"timed_out()> will return 1. Time elapsed is not cumulative; multiple runs of "run" will restart the timeout from scratch. On the other hand, nested timers do observe outer timeouts if they are shorter, resignalling a timeout to the level which established them, i.e. code running under an inner timer can not exceed the time limit established by an outer timer. When restarting an outer timer on return, elapsed time of a running code is taken into account. $t->run_and_catch($coderef) Run a code reference, as per "$t-<gt"run()>, but also catching any "die()" calls within the code reference. Returns "undef" if no "die()" call was executed and $@ was unset, or the value of $@ if it was set. (The timeout event doesn't count as a "die()".) $t->timed_out() Returns 1 if the most recent code executed in "run()" timed out, or "undef" if it did not. $t->reset() If called within a "run()" code reference, causes the current alarm timer to be restored to its original setting (useful after our alarm setting was clobbered by some underlying module). perl v5.12.1 2010-03-16 Mail::SpamAssassin::Timeout(3)
