NAME
ldi_remove_event_handler - remove an NDI event service callback SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/ddi_obsolete.h> int ldi_remove_event_handler(ldi_handle_t lh, ldi_callback_id_t id); INTERFACE LEVEL
Obsolete PARAMETERS
ldi_handle_t lh Layered handle representing the device for which the event notification is requested. ldi_callback_id_t id Unique system-wide registration ID returned by ldi_add_event_handler(9F) upon successful registration. DESCRIPTION
This function is obsolete and is only maintained for compatibility. Use of this function is strongly discouraged. For equivalent function- ality provided by new interfaces, see ldi_ev_register_callbacks(9F) and ldi_ev_remove_callbacks(9F). The ldi_remove_event_handler() function removes the callback handler specified by the registration ID (ldi_callback_id_t). Upon successful removal, the callback handler is removed from the system and is not invoked at the event occurance. RETURN VALUES
DDI_SUCCESS Callback handler removed successfully. DDI_FAILURE Failed to remove callback handler. CONTEXT
This function can be called from user and kernel contexts only. SEE ALSO

NAME
ddi_add_event_handler - add an NDI event service callback handler SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/dditypes.h> #include <sys/sunddi.h> int ddi_add_event_handler(dev_info_t *dip, ddi_eventcookie_t cookie, void (*handler)(dev_info_t *, ddi_eventcookie_t, void *, void *), void *arg, ddi_registration_id_t *id); INTERFACE LEVEL
Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI). PARAMETERS
dev_info_t *dip Device node registering the callback. ddi_eventcookie_t cookie Cookie returned from call to ddi_get_eventcookie(9F). void (*handler)(dev_info_t *, ddi_eventcookie_t, void *, void *) Callback handler responsible for handling an NDI event service notification. void *arg Pointer to opaque data supplied by the caller. Typically, this would be a pointer to the driver's softstate structure. ddi_registration_id_t *id Pointer to registration ID where a unique registration id will be returned. Registration ID must be saved and used when calling ddi_remove_event_handler(9F) to unregister a callback. DESCRIPTION
The ddi_add_event_handler() function adds a callback handler to be invoked in the face of the event specifed by cookie. The process of adding a callback handler is also known as subscribing to an event. Upon successful subscription, the handler will be invoked by the system when the event occurs. The handler can be unregistered by using ddi_remove_event_handler(9F). An instance of a driver can register multiple handlers for an event or a single handler for multiple events. Callback order is not defined and should assumed to be random. The routine handler will be invoked with the following arguments: dev_info_t *dip Device node requesting the notification. ddi_eventcookie_t cookie Structure describing event that occurred. void *arg Opaque data pointer provided, by the driver, during callback registration. void *impl_data Pointer to event specific data defined by the framework which invokes the callback function. RETURN VALUES
DDI_SUCCESS Callback handler registered successfully. DDI_FAILURE Failed to register callback handler. Possible reasons include lack of resources or a bad cookie. CONTEXT
The ddi_add_event_handler() and handler() function can be called from user and kernel contexts only. ATTRIBUTES

Drivers must remove all registered callback handlers for a device instance by calling ddi_remove_event_handler(9F) before detach completes. SunOS 5.11 62 Nov 2003 ddi_add_event_handler(9F)
