bp_copyin(9F)						   Kernel Functions for Drivers 					     bp_copyin(9F)

NAME
bp_copyin - copy from a buf(9S) into a driver buffer SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/buf.h> int bp_copyin(struct buf *bp, void *driverbuf, offset_t offset, size_t size); INTERFACE LEVEL
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI). PARAMETERS
bp Pointer to the buffer header structure to copy from. driverbuf Driver buffer to copy to. offset Offset into bp where to start copying. size Size of copy. DESCRIPTION
The bp_copyin() function copies size bytes into the memory associated with bp to the destination driver buffer driverbuf. The offset only applies to bp. RETURN VALUES
Under normal conditions, 0 is returned to indicate a successful copy. Otherwise, -1 is returned if bp references invalid pages. CONTEXT
The bp_copyin() function can be called from user or kernel context only. SEE ALSO

NAME
bp_mapin - allocate virtual address space SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/buf.h> void bp_mapin(struct buf *bp); INTERFACE LEVEL
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI). PARAMETERS
bp Pointer to the buffer header structure. DESCRIPTION
bp_mapin() is used to map virtual address space to a page list maintained by the buffer header during a paged- I/O request. bp_mapin() allocates system virtual address space, maps that space to the page list, and returns the starting address of the space in the bp->b_un.b_addr field of the buf(9S) structure. Virtual address space is then deallocated using the bp_mapout(9F) function. If a null page list is encountered, bp_mapin() returns without allocating space and no mapping is performed. CONTEXT
bp_mapin() can be called from user and kernel contexts. SEE ALSO
