NAME

       mlx5dv_alloc_dm - allocates device memory (DM)

SYNOPSIS

              #include <infiniband/mlx5dv.h>

              struct ibv_dm *mlx5dv_alloc_dm(struct ibv_context *context,
                                 struct ibv_alloc_dm_attr *dm_attr,
                                 struct mlx5dv_alloc_dm_attr *mlx5_dm_attr)

DESCRIPTION

       mlx5dv_alloc_dm() allocates device memory (DM) with specific driver properties.

ARGUMENTS

       Please see ibv_alloc_dm(3) man page for context and dm_attr.

   mlx5_dm_attr
              struct mlx5dv_alloc_dm_attr {
                  enum mlx5dv_alloc_dm_type type;
                  uint64_t comp_mask;
              };

       type   The device memory type user wishes to allocate:

              MLX5DV_DM_TYPE_MEMIC  Device  memory  of  type  MEMIC  - On-Chip memory that can be
              allocated and used as memory  region  for  transmitting/receiving  packet  directly
              from/to the memory on the chip.

              MLX5DV_DM_TYPE_STEERING_SW_ICM  Device memory of type STEERING SW ICM - This memory
              is used by the device to store the packet steering tables and rules.  Can  be  used
              for direct table and steering rules creation when allocated by a privileged user.

              MLX5DV_DM_TYPE_HEADER_MODIFY_SW_ICM  Device  memory  of type HEADER MODIFY SW ICM -
              This memory is used by the device to store the packet  header  modification  tables
              and  rules.   Can  be  used for direct table and header modification rules creation
              when allocated by a privileged user.

       comp_mask
              Bitmask specifying what fields in the structure are valid: Currently  reserved  and
              should be set to 0.

RETURN VALUE

       mlx5dv_alloc_dm()  returns a pointer to the created DM, on error NULL will be returned and
       errno will be set.
