DEVICE_GET_IVARS(9)					   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual				       DEVICE_GET_IVARS(9)

NAME
device_get_ivars, device_set_ivars -- access bus private variables SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/bus.h> void * device_get_ivars(device_t dev); void device_set_ivars(device_t dev, void *ivar); DESCRIPTION
The device_get_ivars() function returns the bus-specific instance variables of a device. The device_set_ivars() function sets the bus-specific instance variables of a device. Typically, only bus drivers will use these functions. The kernel assumes that the bus driver will manage this memory, and no automatic mem- ory allocation or deallocation happens. Client drivers should access ivars through the BUS_READ_IVAR(9) interface instead. SEE ALSO

DEVICE_GET_SOFTC(9)					   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual				       DEVICE_GET_SOFTC(9)

NAME
device_get_softc -- access driver private instance variables SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/bus.h> void * device_get_softc(device_t dev); DESCRIPTION
Return the driver-specific state of dev. The softc is automatically allocated and zeroed when the device is attached. The softc is also initialized and present when a device is probed, but is subject to caveats as described in DEVICE_PROBE(9). The size of the allocation is determined by the device's driver_t information used to define the driver. The softc typically encapsulates the state of this instance of the device. Driver writers are discouraged from using their own softc management mechanisms. Driver writers should not copy such mechanisms found in drivers in the tree that predate this function. RETURN VALUES
The pointer to the driver-specific instance variable is returned. SEE ALSO
