illumos USB HCD private function

This is a private function that is not part of the stable DDI. It may be removed or changed at any time.

Pointer to an allocated HCD interface operations structure.

The () function allocates a usba_hcdi_ops_t(9S) structure for use for a USB HCD driver. As part of initialization, a USB HCD driver will allocate this and fill it in. For more information on the full lifetime of the object and when a USB HCD driver should release the structure, see usba_hcdi(9E).

The () function release the memory associated with the usba_hcdi_ops_t(9S) structure pointed to by ops. Only pointers received from a call to the usba_alloc_hcdi_ops() function should be passed to this function.

These functions are generally called from kernel context during a USB HCD driver's attach(9E) and detach(9E) entry points. While it is safe to call this function from user context, it would be quite unusal to do so.

The usba_alloc_hcdi_ops() function always succeeds and returns a pointer to an allocation operations structure.
