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

usb_get_status - Get status of a USB device/endpoint/interface

#include <sys/usb/usba.h>
int usb_get_status(dev_info_t *dip, usb_pipe_handle_t pipe_handle,
     uint_t request_type, uint_t which, uint16_t *status,
     usb_flags_t flags);

illumos DDI specific (illumos DDI)

Pointer to device's dev_info structure.


Default control pipe handle on which request is made.


bmRequestType. Either:

USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_DEV — Get device status.

USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_IF — Get interface status.

USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_EP — Get endpoint status.


Device, interface or endpoint from which to get status. Either number of interface or endpoint, or 0 if device status requested.


Address into which the status is written.


None are recognized.

The usb_get_status() function returns the status of a device, interface or endpoint. All status requests use the default control pipe. Length of data returned is USB_GET_STATUS_LEN bytes. Always block and wait for resources if not available, regardless of the flags argument.

When the request_type recipient is USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_DEV, device status is requested. Status returned includes bits for USB_DEV_SLF_PWRD_STATUS (device is currently self-powered) and USB_DEV_RWAKEUP_STATUS (device has remote wakeup enabled). A set bit indicates the corresponding status.

When the request_type is USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_EP, endpoint status is requested. Status returned includes bits for USB_EP_HALT_STATUS (endpoint is halted). A set bit indicates the corresponding status.

When the request_type is USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_IF, interface status is requested and USB_IF_STATUS (zero) is returned.

Status returned successfully in the status argument.


Status pointer and/or dip argument is NULL.


Pipe handle is NULL.


Status not returned successfully.

May be called from user or kernel context.

  if (usb_get_status(
      dip, pipe_handle, USB_DEV_REQ_RCPT_DEV, 0 &status, 0) ==
