NAME

pciconfig_read, pciconfig_write, pciconfig_iobase - pci device information handling  

SYNOPSIS

#include <pci.h>int pciconfig_read(unsigned long bus, unsigned long dfn,          unsigned long off, unsigned long len, void *buf);int pciconfig_write(unsigned long bus, unsigned long dfn,          unsigned long off, unsigned long len, void *buf);int pciconfig_iobase(long which, unsigned long bus,          unsigned long devfn);
 

DESCRIPTION

Most of the interaction with PCI devices is already handled by the kernel PCI layer, and thus these calls should not normally need to be accessed from user space.

pciconfig_read()
Reads to buffrom device devat offset offvalue.
pciconfig_write()
Writes from bufto device devat offset offvalue.
pciconfig_iobase()
You pass it a bus/devfn pair and get a physical address for either the memory offset (for things like prep, this is 0xc0000000), the IO base for PIO cycles, or the ISA holes if any.
 

RETURN VALUE

pciconfig_read()
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned and errnois set appropriately.
pciconfig_write()
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned and errnois set appropriately.
pciconfig_iobase()
Returns information on locations of various I/O regions in physical memory according to the whichvalue. Values for whichare: IOBASE_BRIDGE_NUMBER, IOBASE_MEMORY, IOBASE_IO, IOBASE_ISA_IO, IOBASE_ISA_MEM.
 

ERRORS

EINVAL
lenvalue is invalid. This does not apply to pciconfig_iobase().
EIO
I/O error.
ENODEV
For pciconfig_iobase(), "hose" value is NULL. For the other calls, could not find a slot.
ENOSYS
The system has not implemented these calls (CONFIG_PCInot defined).
EOPNOTSUPP
This return value is valid only for pciconfig_iobase(). It is returned if the value for whichis invalid.
EPERM
User does not have the CAP_SYS_ADMINcapability. This does not apply to pciconfig_iobase().
 

CONFORMING TO

These calls are Linux-specific, available since Linux 2.0.26/2.1.11.
