ioctl_fslabel - get or set a filesystem label
int ioctl(int fd, FS_IOC_GETFSLABEL, char
int ioctl(int fd, FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL, char label[FSLABEL_MAX]);
If a filesystem supports online label manipulation, these ioctl(2) operations can be used to get or set the filesystem label for the filesystem on which fd resides. The FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL operation requires privilege (CAP_SYS_ADMIN).
On success zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.
Error can include (but are not limited to) the following:
These ioctl(2) operations first appeared in Linux 4.18. They were previously known as BTRFS_IOC_GET_FSLABEL and BTRFS_IOC_SET_FSLABEL and were private to Btrfs.
This API is Linux-specific.
The maximum string length for this interface is FSLABEL_MAX, including the terminating null byte ('\0'). Filesystems have differing maximum label lengths, which may or may not include the terminating null. The string provided to FS_IOC_SETFSLABEL must always be null-terminated, and the string returned by FS_IOC_GETFSLABEL will always be null-terminated.
