g_new_consumer: GEOM consumers management

g_new_consumer, g_destroy_consumer -- GEOM consumers management
#include <geom/geom.h> struct g_consumer * g_new_consumer(struct g_geom *gp); void g_destroy_consumer(struct g_consumer *cp);


A GEOM consumer is the backdoor through which a geom connects to another GEOM provider and through which I/O requests are sent. The g_new_consumer() function creates a new consumer on geom gp. Before using the new consumer, it has to be attached to a provider with g_attach(9) and opened with g_access(9). The g_destroy_consumer() function destroys the given consumer and cancels all related pending events. This function is the last stage of killing an unwanted consumer.


g_new_consumer(): The geom gp has to have an orphan method defined. The topology lock has to be held. g_destroy_consumer(): The consumer must not be attached to a provider. The access count has to be 0. The topology lock has to be held.


The g_new_consumer() function returns a pointer to the newly created consumer.


Create consumer, attach it to given provider, gain read access and clean up. void some_function(struct g_geom *mygeom, struct g_provider *pp) { struct g_consumer *cp; g_topology_assert(); /* Create new consumer on 'mygeom' geom. */ cp = g_new_consumer(mygeom); /* Attach newly created consumer to given provider. */ if (g_attach(cp, pp) != 0) { g_destroy_consumer(cp); return; } /* Open provider for reading through our consumer. */ if (g_access(cp, 1, 0, 0) != 0) { g_detach(cp); g_destroy_consumer(cp); return; } g_topology_unlock(); /* * Read data from provider. */ g_topology_lock(); /* Disconnect from provider (release access count). */ g_access(cp, -1, 0, 0); /* Detach from provider. */ g_detach(cp); /* Destroy consumer. */ g_destroy_consumer(cp); }
