NAME

     i386_get_ioperm, i386_set_ioperm - manage per-process access to the i386
     I/O port space

LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

     #include <machine/sysarch.h>

     int
     i386_get_ioperm(unsigned int start, unsigned int *length, int *enable);

     int
     i386_set_ioperm(unsigned int start, unsigned int length, int enable);

DESCRIPTION

     The i386_get_ioperm() system call will return the permission for the
     process’ I/O port space in the *enable argument.  The port range starts
     at start and the number of contiguous entries will be returned in
     *length.

     The i386_set_ioperm() system call will set access to a range of I/O ports
     described by the start and length arguments to the state specified by the
     enable argument.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS

     The i386_get_ioperm() and i386_set_ioperm() system calls will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           An invalid range was specified by the start or length
                        arguments.

     [EPERM]            The caller of i386_set_ioperm was not the superuser.
