NAME

       usb_get_intf  -  increments  the  reference  count of the usb interface
       structure

SYNOPSIS

       struct usb_interface * usb_get_intf  (struct usb_interface * intf);

ARGUMENTS

       intf   the interface being referenced

DESCRIPTION

       Each live reference to a interface must be refcounted.

       Drivers for USB interfaces should normally record  such  references  in
       their  probe  methods, when they bind to an interface, and release them
       by calling usb_put_intf, in their disconnect methods.

       A pointer to the interface with the incremented  reference  counter  is
       returned.
