BUS_SETUP_INTR, bus_setup_intr, BUS_TEARDOWN_INTR, bus_teardown_intr -
create, attach and teardown an interrupt handler
BUS_SETUP_INTR(device_t dev, device_t child, struct resource *irq,
int flags, driver_intr_t *intr, void *arg, void **cookiep);
bus_setup_intr(device_t dev, struct resource *r, int flags,
driver_intr_t handler, void *arg, void **cookiep);
BUS_TEARDOWN_INTR(device_t dev, device_t child, struct resource *irq,
bus_teardown_intr(device_t dev, struct resource *r, void *cookiep);
The BUS_SETUP_INTR() method will create and attach an interrupt handler
to an interrupt previously allocated by the resource manager’s
BUS_ALLOC_RESOURCE(9) method. The flags are found in and give the broad
category of interrupt. The flags also tell the interrupt handlers about
certain device driver characteristics. INTR_FAST means the handler is
for a timing-critical function. Extra care is take to speed up these
handlers. Use of this implies INTR_EXCL. INTR_EXCL marks the handler as
being an exclusive handler for this interrupt. INTR_MPSAFE tells the
scheduler that the interrupt handler is well behaved in a preemptive
environment (‘‘SMP safe’’), and does not need to be protected by the
‘‘Giant Lock’’ mutex. INTR_ENTROPY marks the interrupt as being a good
source of entropy - this may be used by the entropy device /dev/random.
The handler intr will be called with the value arg as its only argument.
The cookiep argument is a pointer to a void * that BUS_SETUP_INTR() will
write a cookie for the parent bus’ use to if it is successful in
establishing an interrupt. Driver writers may assume that this cookie
will be non-zero. The nexus driver will write 0 on failure to cookiep.
The interrupt handler will be detached by BUS_TEARDOWN_INTR(). The
cookie needs to be passed to BUS_TEARDOWN_INTR() in order to tear down
the correct interrupt handler. Once BUS_TEARDOWN_INTR() returns, it is
guaranteed that the interrupt function is not active and will no longer
Mutexes are not allowed to be held across calls to these functions.
Zero is returned on success, otherwise an appropriate error is returned.
