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

rmalloc_wait - allocate space from a resource map, wait if necessary

#include <sys/map.h>
#include <sys/ddi.h>
unsigned long rmalloc_wait(struct map *mp, size_t size);

Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI).

mp
Pointer to the resource map from which space is to be allocated.

size

Number of units of space to allocate.

The rmalloc_wait() function requests an allocation of space from a resource map. rmalloc_wait() is similar to the rmalloc(9F) function with the exception that it will wait for space to become available if necessary.

The rmalloc_wait() function returns the base of the allocated space.

This function can be called from user, interrupt, or kernel context. However, in most cases rmalloc_wait() should not be called from interrupt context.
