DESCRIPTION¶The functions kqueue_add_filteropts() and kqueue_del_filteropts() allow for the addition and removal of a filter type. The filter is statically defined by the
EVFILT_*macros. The function kqueue_add_filteropts() will make filt available. The struct filterops has the following members:
- If f_isfd is set, ident in struct kevent is taken to be a file descriptor. In this case, the knote passed into f_attach will have the kn_fp member initialized to the struct file * that represents the file descriptor.
- The f_attach function will be called
when attaching a knote to the object. The method
should call knlist_add() to add the
knote to the list that was initialized with
knlist_init(). The call to
knlist_add() is only necessary if the object can have
multiple knotes associated with it. If there is no
knlist to call knlist_add() with,
the function f_attach must clear the
KN_DETACHEDbit of kn_status in the knote. The function shall return 0 on success, or appropriate error for the failure. During f_attach, it is valid to change the kn_fops pointer to a different pointer. This will change the f_event and f_detach functions called when processing the knote.
- The f_detach function will be called to detach the knote if the knote has not already been detached by a call to knlist_remove().
- The f_event function will be called
to update the status of the knote. If the function
returns 0, it will be assumed that the object is not ready (or no longer
ready) to be woken up. The hint argument will be 0
when scanning knotes to see which are triggered.
Otherwise, the hint argument will be the value
passed to either
KNOTE_UNLOCKED. The kn_data value should be updated as necessary to reflect the current value, such as number of bytes available for reading, or buffer space available for writing. If the note needs to be removed, knlist_remove_inevent() must be called. The function knlist_remove_inevent() will remove the note from the list, the f_detach function will not be called and the knote will not be returned as an event. Locks must not be acquired in f_event. If a lock is required in f_event, it must be obtained in the kl_lock function of the knlist that the knote was added to.
NULL, an internal lock will be used and the remaining arguments will be ignored. The kl_lock, kl_unlock and kl_locked functions will be used to manipulate a lock. If the argument is
NULL, default routines operating on struct mtx * will be used. The knlist structure may be embedded into the object structure. The lock will be held over calls to f_event. If
NULLis passed for the mutex, a private mutex will be used. The function knlist_empty() requires that a lock be held. The function knlist_clear() is used to remove all knotes associated with the list. The islocked argument declares if lock has been acquired. All knotes will be marked as detached, and
EV_ONESHOTwill be set so that the knote will be deleted after the next scan. The knlist_destroy() function is used to destroy a knlist. There must be no knotes associated with the knlist (knlist_empty returns true) and no more knotes may be attached to the object. A knlist may be emptied by calling knlist_clear(). The macros KNOTE_LOCKED() and KNOTE_UNLOCKED() are used to notify knotes about events associated with the object. It will iterate over all knotes on the list calling the f_event function associated with the knote. The macro KNOTE_LOCKED() must be used if the lock associated with the knl passed in is held. The function KNOTE_UNLOCKED() will acquire the lock before iterating over the list of knotes.
RETURN VALUES¶The function kqueue_add_filteropts() will return zero on success,
EINVALin the case of an invalid filt, or
EEXISTif the filter has already been installed. The function kqueue_del_filteropts() will return zero on success,
EINVALin the case of an invalid filt, or
EBUSYif the filter is still in use. The function kqfd_register() will return zero on success,
EBADFif the file descriptor is not a kqueue, or any of the possible values returned by kevent(2).
