NAME

       gnet_stats_start_copy_compat - start dumping procedure in compatibility
       mode

SYNOPSIS

       int gnet_stats_start_copy_compat  (struct sk_buff * skb, int type,
                                           int tc_stats_type, int xstats_type,
                                           spinlock_t * lock,
                                           struct gnet_dump * d);

ARGUMENTS

       skb    socket buffer to put statistics TLVs into

       type   TLV type for top level statistic TLV

       tc_stats_type
              TLV type for backward compatibility struct tc_stats TLV

       xstats_type
              TLV type for backward compatibility xstats TLV

       lock   statistics lock

       d      dumping handle

DESCRIPTION

       Initializes the dumping handle, grabs the statistic lock and appends an
       empty TLV header to the socket buffer for use a container for all other
       statistic TLVS.

       The  dumping  handle  is  marked  to  be in backward compatibility mode
       telling all gnet_stats_copy_XXX functions  to  fill  a  local  copy  of
       struct tc_stats.

       Returns  0  on  success  or -1 if the room in the socket buffer was not
       sufficient.
