DESCRIPTION

       These are low-level routines for creating and parsing lightweight resolver address-to-name
       lookup request and response messages.

       There are four main functions for the getnamebyaddr opcode. One render function converts a
       getnamebyaddr request structure — lwres_gnbarequest_t — to the lightweight resolver's
       canonical format. It is complemented by a parse function that converts a packet in this
       canonical format to a getnamebyaddr request structure. Another render function converts
       the getnamebyaddr response structure — lwres_gnbaresponse_t to the canonical format. This
       is complemented by a parse function which converts a packet in canonical format to a
       getnamebyaddr response structure.

       These structures are defined in lwres/lwres.h. They are shown below.

           #define LWRES_OPCODE_GETNAMEBYADDR      0x00010002U

           typedef struct {
                   lwres_uint32_t  flags;
                   lwres_addr_t    addr;
           } lwres_gnbarequest_t;

           typedef struct {
                   lwres_uint32_t  flags;
                   lwres_uint16_t  naliases;
                   char           *realname;
                   char          **aliases;
                   lwres_uint16_t  realnamelen;
                   lwres_uint16_t *aliaslen;
                   void           *base;
                   size_t          baselen;
           } lwres_gnbaresponse_t;

       lwres_gnbarequest_render() uses resolver context ctx to convert getnamebyaddr request
       structure req to canonical format. The packet header structure pkt is initialised and
       transferred to buffer b. The contents of *req are then appended to the buffer in canonical
       format.  lwres_gnbaresponse_render() performs the same task, except it converts a
       getnamebyaddr response structure lwres_gnbaresponse_t to the lightweight resolver's
       canonical format.

       lwres_gnbarequest_parse() uses context ctx to convert the contents of packet pkt to a
       lwres_gnbarequest_t structure. Buffer b provides space to be used for storing this
       structure. When the function succeeds, the resulting lwres_gnbarequest_t is made available
       through *structp.  lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() offers the same semantics as
       lwres_gnbarequest_parse() except it yields a lwres_gnbaresponse_t structure.

       lwres_gnbaresponse_free() and lwres_gnbarequest_free() release the memory in resolver
       context ctx that was allocated to the lwres_gnbaresponse_t or lwres_gnbarequest_t
       structures referenced via structp. Any memory associated with ancillary buffers and
       strings for those structures is also discarded.

RETURN VALUES

       The getnamebyaddr opcode functions lwres_gnbarequest_render(), lwres_gnbaresponse_render()
       lwres_gnbarequest_parse() and lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() all return LWRES_R_SUCCESS on
       success. They return LWRES_R_NOMEMORY if memory allocation fails.  LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND
       is returned if the available space in the buffer b is too small to accommodate the packet
       header or the lwres_gnbarequest_t and lwres_gnbaresponse_t structures.
       lwres_gnbarequest_parse() and lwres_gnbaresponse_parse() will return LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND
       if the buffer is not empty after decoding the received packet. These functions will return
       LWRES_R_FAILURE if pktflags in the packet header structure lwres_lwpacket_t indicate that
       the packet is not a response to an earlier query.
