Example text

The function pointer contains a pointer to a rou­ tine that implements the command. /* ** command function pointer definition */ typedef void (*fptr) (int, char *); Listing 3-12 The function type, fptr, is defined as the prototype for all command handlers. Every command is passed by two parameters. The first parameter is the system call number. Because copymem is a KLD system, there is no system call wrapper, so the system call is made by using the syscall system call. It takes the system call number and system call parameters and performs the system call as defined in the previous section.

Interrupt Handling Passing Data The kernel implements many different system calls. To distinguish between different system calls, a number is passed that designates which system call is being made; this number is called the system call number. master. Before a sys­ tem call is made, the system call number is pushed onto the program stack. 30 Embedded FreeBSD Cookbook In addition to the system call number, many system calls take parameters. Parameters are passed to the kernel using the C calling con­ vention.

A processes file creation mode mask is modified by the umask system call. The umask System Call The file permission mask is typically set by the umask command in the user’s login shell. The file permission amsk can be modified by the umask system call. The umask system call sets the process file creation mask to the value contained in umask. h> mode_t umask(mode_t numask); The previous value of the file creation mask is returned to the caller. Current Working Directory Every process contains a current working directory, which is the directory where the process was started.
