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

NAME
rmalloc_wait - allocate space from a resource map, wait if necessary SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/map.h> #include <sys/ddi.h> unsigned long rmalloc_wait(struct map *mp, size_t size); INTERFACE LEVEL
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI). PARAMETERS
mp Pointer to the resource map from which space is to be allocated. size Number of units of space to allocate. DESCRIPTION
The rmalloc_wait() function requests an allocation of space from a resource map. rmalloc_wait() is similar to the rmalloc(9F) function with the exception that it will wait for space to become available if necessary. RETURN VALUES
The rmalloc_wait() function returns the base of the allocated space. CONTEXT
This function can be called from user, interrupt, or kernel context. However, in most cases rmalloc_wait() should not be called from inter- rupt context. SEE ALSO
rmalloc(9F), rmallocmap(9F), rmfree(9F), rmfreemap(9F) Writing Device Drivers SunOS 5.11 16 Jan 2006 rmalloc_wait(9F)
