.Sh NAME
.Nm VOP_GETATTR ,
.Nm VOP_SETATTR
.Nd get and set attributes on a file or directory
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In sys/param.h
.In sys/vnode.h
.Ft int
.Fn VOP_GETATTR "struct vnode *vp" "struct vattr *vap" "struct ucred *cred" "struct proc *p"
.Ft int
.Fn VOP_SETATTR "struct vnode *vp" "struct vattr *vap" "struct ucred *cred" "struct proc *p"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
These entry points manipulate various attributes of a file or directory,
including file permissions, owner, group, size,
access time and modification time.
.Pp
The arguments are:
.Bl -tag -width cred
.It Ar vp
the vnode of the file
.It Ar vap
the attributes of the file
.It Ar cred
the user credentials of the calling process
.It Ar p
the process
.El
.Pp
Attributes which are not being modified by
.Xr VOP_SETATTR 9
should be set to the value
.Dv VNOVAL .
.Sh LOCKS
.Xr VOP_GETATTR 9
expects the vnode to be locked on entry and will leave the vnode locked on
return.
.Pp
.Xr VOP_SETATTR 9
expects the vnode to be locked on entry and will leave the vnode locked on

.Xr VOP_SETATTR 9
returns zero if the attributes were changed successfully, otherwise an
