struct_input_handler - implements one of interfaces for input devices SYNOPSIS
struct input_handler { void * private; void (* event) (struct input_handle *handle, unsigned int type, unsigned int code, int value); void (* events) (struct input_handle *handle,const struct input_value *vals, unsigned int count); bool (* filter) (struct input_handle *handle, unsigned int type, unsigned int code, int value); bool (* match) (struct input_handler *handler, struct input_dev *dev); int (* connect) (struct input_handler *handler, struct input_dev *dev, const struct input_device_id *id); void (* disconnect) (struct input_handle *handle); void (* start) (struct input_handle *handle); bool legacy_minors; int minor; const char * name; const struct input_device_id * id_table; struct list_head h_list; struct list_head node; }; MEMBERS
private driver-specific data event event handler. This method is being called by input core with interrupts disabled and dev->event_lock spinlock held and so it may not sleep events event sequence handler. This method is being called by input core with interrupts disabled and dev->event_lock spinlock held and so it may not sleep filter similar to event; separates normal event handlers from "filters". match called after comparing device's id with handler's id_table to perform fine-grained matching between device and handler connect called when attaching a handler to an input device disconnect disconnects a handler from input device start starts handler for given handle. This function is called by input core right after connect method and also when a process that "grabbed" a device releases it legacy_minors set to true by drivers using legacy minor ranges minor beginning of range of 32 legacy minors for devices this driver can provide name name of the handler, to be shown in /proc/bus/input/handlers id_table pointer to a table of input_device_ids this driver can handle h_list list of input handles associated with the handler node for placing the driver onto input_handler_list DESCRIPTION
Input handlers attach to input devices and create input handles. There are likely several handlers attached to any given input device at the same time. All of them will get their copy of input event generated by the device. The very same structure is used to implement input filters. Input core allows filters to run first and will not pass event to regular handlers if any of the filters indicate that the event should be filtered (by returning true from their filter method). Note that input core serializes calls to connect and disconnect methods. COPYRIGHT

struct_usb_driver - identifies USB interface driver to usbcore SYNOPSIS
struct usb_driver { const char * name; int (* probe) (struct usb_interface *intf,const struct usb_device_id *id); void (* disconnect) (struct usb_interface *intf); int (* ioctl) (struct usb_interface *intf, unsigned int code,void *buf); int (* suspend) (struct usb_interface *intf, pm_message_t message); int (* resume) (struct usb_interface *intf); int (* reset_resume) (struct usb_interface *intf); int (* pre_reset) (struct usb_interface *intf); int (* post_reset) (struct usb_interface *intf); const struct usb_device_id * id_table; struct usb_dynids dynids; struct usbdrv_wrap drvwrap; unsigned int no_dynamic_id:1; unsigned int supports_autosuspend:1; unsigned int soft_unbind:1; }; MEMBERS
name The driver name should be unique among USB drivers, and should normally be the same as the module name. probe Called to see if the driver is willing to manage a particular interface on a device. If it is, probe returns zero and uses usb_set_intfdata to associate driver-specific data with the interface. It may also use usb_set_interface to specify the appropriate altsetting. If unwilling to manage the interface, return -ENODEV, if genuine IO errors occured, an appropriate negative errno value. disconnect Called when the interface is no longer accessible, usually because its device has been (or is being) disconnected or the driver module is being unloaded. ioctl Used for drivers that want to talk to userspace through the "usbfs" filesystem. This lets devices provide ways to expose information to user space regardless of where they do (or don't) show up otherwise in the filesystem. suspend Called when the device is going to be suspended by the system. resume Called when the device is being resumed by the system. reset_resume Called when the suspended device has been reset instead of being resumed. pre_reset Called by usb_reset_device when the device is about to be reset. post_reset Called by usb_reset_device after the device has been reset id_table USB drivers use ID table to support hotplugging. Export this with MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(usb,...). This must be set or your driver's probe function will never get called. dynids used internally to hold the list of dynamically added device ids for this driver. drvwrap Driver-model core structure wrapper. no_dynamic_id if set to 1, the USB core will not allow dynamic ids to be added to this driver by preventing the sysfs file from being created. supports_autosuspend if set to 0, the USB core will not allow autosuspend for interfaces bound to this driver. soft_unbind if set to 1, the USB core will not kill URBs and disable endpoints before calling the driver's disconnect method. DESCRIPTION
USB interface drivers must provide a name, probe and disconnect methods, and an id_table. Other driver fields are optional. The id_table is used in hotplugging. It holds a set of descriptors, and specialized data may be associated with each entry. That table is used by both user and kernel mode hotplugging support. The probe and disconnect methods are called in a context where they can sleep, but they should avoid abusing the privilege. Most work to connect to a device should be done when the device is opened, and undone at the last close. The disconnect code needs to address concurrency issues with respect to open and close methods, as well as forcing all pending I/O requests to complete (by unlinking them as necessary, and blocking until the unlinks complete).
