     svc_getreq_poll, svc_getreqset, svc_getrpccaller, svc_pollset, svc_run, svc_sendreply --
     library routines for RPC servers

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     svc_freeargs(const SVCXPRT *xprt, const xdrproc_t inproc, caddr_t in);

     svc_sendreply(const SVCXPRT *xprt, const xdrproc_t outproc, const caddr_t *out);

     These routines are part of the RPC library which allows C language programs to make proce-
     dure calls on other machines across the network.

     These routines are associated with the server side of the RPC mechanism.  Some of them are
     called by the server side dispatch function, while others (such as svc_run()) are called
     when the server is initiated.

     See rpc(3) for the definition of the SVCXPRT data structure.

     svc_dg_enablecache()    This function allocates a duplicate request cache for the service
			     endpoint xprt, large enough to hold cache_size entries.  Once
			     enabled, there is no way to disable caching.  This routine returns 0
			     if space necessary for a cache of the given size was successfully
			     allocated, and 1 otherwise.

     svc_exit() 	     This function when called by any of the RPC server procedure or oth-
			     erwise, causes svc_run() to return.

			     As currently implemented, svc_exit() zeroes the svc_fdset global
			     variable.	If RPC server activity is to be resumed, services must be
			     reregistered with the RPC library either through one of the
			     rpc_svc_create() functions, or using xprt_register().  svc_exit()
			     has global scope and ends all RPC server activity.  fd_set svc_fdset
			     A global variable reflecting the RPC server's read file descriptor
			     bit mask; it is suitable as a parameter to the select(2) system
			     call.  This is only of interest if service implementors do not call
			     svc_run(), but rather do their own asynchronous event processing.
			     This variable is read-only (do not pass its address to select(2)!),
			     yet it may change after calls to svc_getreqset() or any creation

     svc_freeargs()	     A function macro that frees any data allocated by the RPC/XDR system
			     when it decoded the arguments to a service procedure using
			     svc_getargs().  This routine returns TRUE if the results were suc-
			     cessfully freed, and FALSE otherwise.

     svc_getargs()	     A function macro that decodes the arguments of an RPC request asso-
			     ciated with the RPC service transport handle xprt.  The parameter in
			     is the address where the arguments will be placed; inproc is the XDR
			     routine used to decode the arguments.  This routine returns TRUE if
			     decoding succeeds, and FALSE otherwise.

     svc_getreq_common()     This routine is called to handle a request on the given file

     svc_getreq_poll()	     This routine is only of interest if a service implementor does not
			     call svc_run(), but instead implements custom asynchronous event
			     processing.  It is called when poll(2) has determined that an RPC
			     request has arrived on some RPC file descriptors; pollretval() is
			     the return value from poll(2) and pfdp is the array of pollfd struc-
			     tures on which the poll(2) was done.  It is assumed to be an array
			     large enough to contain the maximal number of descriptors allowed.

     svc_getreqset()	     This routine is only of interest if a service implementor does not
			     call svc_run(), but instead implements custom asynchronous event
			     processing.  It is called when poll(2) has determined that an RPC
			     request has arrived on some RPC file descriptors; rdfds is the
			     resultant read file descriptor bit mask.  The routine returns when
			     all file descriptors associated with the value of rdfds have been

     svc_getrpccaller()      The approved way of getting the network address of the caller of a
			     procedure associated with the RPC service transport handle xprt.

     __svc_getcallercreds()  Warning: this macro is specific to NetBSD and thus not portable.
			     This macro returns a pointer to a sockcred structure, defined in
			     <sys/socket.h>, identifying the calling client.  This only works if
			     the client is calling the server over an AF_LOCAL socket.

     struct pollfd svc_pollset[FD_SETSIZE];
			     svc_pollset is an array of pollfd structures derived from
			     svc_fdset[].  It is suitable as a parameter to the poll(2) system
			     call.  The derivation of svc_pollset from svc_fdset is made in the
			     current implementation in svc_run().  Service implementors who do
			     not call svc_run() and who wish to use this array must perform this
			     derivation themselves.

     svc_run()		     This routine never returns.  It waits for RPC requests to arrive,
			     and calls the appropriate service procedure using svc_getreq_poll()
			     when one arrives.	This procedure is usually waiting for the poll(2)
			     system call to return.

     svc_sendreply()	     Called by an RPC service's dispatch routine to send the results of a
			     remote procedure call.  The parameter xprt is the request's associ-
			     ated transport handle; outproc is the XDR routine which is used to
			     encode the results; and out is the address of the results.  This
			     routine returns TRUE if it succeeds, FALSE otherwise.
