NAME

       _devfs_append_entry  -   Append  a  devfs  entry to a directory’s child
       list.

SYNOPSIS

       int _devfs_append_entry (devfs_handle_t  dir,  devfs_handle_t  de,  int
       removable, devfs_handle_t *old_de);

ARGUMENTS

       dir           The directory to add to.

       de            The devfs entry to append.

       removable    If TRUE, increment the count of removable devices for dir.

       old_de       If an existing entry exists, it will be written here. This
                   may  be  NULL.  An  implicit devfs_get is performed on this
                   entry.

DESCRIPTION

       Append a devfs entry to a directory’s list of children, checking  first
       to  see  if  an  entry  of  the same name exists. The directory will be
       locked.  The value 0 is returned on  success,  else  a  negative  error
       code.  On failure, an implicit devfs_put is performed on de.
