DDI_FFS(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers DDI_FFS(9F)

ddi_ffs, ddi_fls - find first (last) bit set in a long integer

#include <sys/conf.h>
#include <sys/ddi.h>
#include <sys/sunddi.h>
int ddi_ffs(long mask);

int ddi_fls(long mask);

illumos DDI specific (illumos DDI).

A 64-bit argument value to search through.

The function ddi_ffs() takes its argument and returns the shift count that the first (least significant) bit set in the argument corresponds to. The function ddi_fls() does the same, only it returns the shift count for the last (most significant) bit set in the argument.

No bits are set in mask.


Bit N is the least significant (ddi_ffs) or most significant (ddi_fls) bit set in mask. Bits are numbered from 1 to 64, with bit 1 being the least significant bit position and bit 64 the most significant position.

This function can be called from user, interrupt, or kernel context.
