NAME
     gpiolock -- support for multi-position keylocks attached to GPIO pins

SYNOPSIS
     gpiolock* at gpio? offset ? mask ?
     gpiolock* at gpio?

DESCRIPTION
     The gpiolock driver allows connecting of multi-position keylocks over GPIO pins.  The key-
     lock driver registers with an in-kernel keylock supporting system and provides kauth(9) sup-
     port through an experimental security model.  The keylock state can be queried using the
     hw.keylock sysctl variables.  Only locks with 2-4 positions are currently supported.  The
     pin number is specified in the kernel configuration with the offset locator.  The mask loca-
     tor denotes the pins used for the lock (minimum 2, maximum 4 pins are used).  The offset and
     mask can also be specified when gpiolock is attached at runtime using the GPIOATTACH
     ioctl(2) on the gpio(4) device.
