NAME

store, casu32, casu64, subyte, suword32, suword64 -- store data to user- space

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/time.h> #include <sys/systm.h> #include <sys/resourcevar.h> uint32_t casu32(volatile uint32_t *p, uint32_t oldval, uint32_t newval); uint64_t casu64(volatile uint64_t *p, uint64_t oldval, uint64_t newval); int subyte(uint8_t *base, uint8_t byte); int suword32(uint32_t *base, int word); int suword64(uint64_t *base, uint64_t word);

DESCRIPTION

The store functions are designed to copy small amounts of data to user- space. The store routines provide the following functionality: casu32() Compares the 32 bit oldval with the 32 bits at base, and if equal, base is set to newval. The old value at base is then returned. casu64() Compares the 64 bit oldval with the 64 bits at base, and if equal, base is set to newval. The old value at base is then returned. subyte() Stores a byte of data to the user-space address base. suword32() Stores 32 bits of data to the user-space address base. suword64() Stores 64 bits of data to the user-space address base.

RETURN VALUES

The store functions return 0 on success or -1 on failure.
