ddi_driver_name - return normalized driver name

#include <sys/ddi.h>
#include <sys/sunddi.h>
const char *ddi_driver_name(dev_info_t *devi);

illumos DDI specific (illumos DDI).

A pointer to the device's dev_info structure.

ddi_driver_name() returns the normalized driver name. This name is typically derived from the device name property or the device compatible property. If this name is a driver alias, the corresponding driver name is returned.

ddi_driver_name() returns the actual name of the driver bound to a device.
