NAME

       devfs_get_handle -  Find the handle of a devfs entry.

SYNOPSIS

       devfs_handle_t  devfs_get_handle (devfs_handle_t dir, const char *name,
       unsigned   int   major,   unsigned   int   minor,   char   type,    int
       traverse_symlinks);

ARGUMENTS

       dir          The handle to the parent devfs directory entry. If this is
                   NULL the name is relative to the root of the devfs.

       name         The name of the entry.

       major        The major number. This is used if name is NULL.

       minor        The minor number. This is used if name is NULL.

       type         The type of special file to search for. This may be either
                   DEVFS_SPECIAL_CHR or DEVFS_SPECIAL_BLK.

       traverse_symlinks
                    If  TRUE  then  symlink entries in the devfs namespace are
                   traversed. Symlinks pointing out  of  the  devfs  namespace
                   will  cause  a  failure.  Symlink  traversal consumes stack
                   space.

DESCRIPTION

       Returns a handle which may later be used in a call to devfs_unregister,
       devfs_get_flags, or devfs_set_flags. A subsequent devfs_put is required
       to decrement the refcount.  On failure NULL is returned.
