irframe -- IrDA frame level driver
irframe* at oboe?
irframe* at uirda?
irframe* at ustir?
The irframe driver provides support for IrDA frame level transmission.
It does not contain the IrDA protocol stack per se, but the stack can be
built on top of the irframe driver.
Access to frames is via the read(2) and write(2) system calls. Each
write constitutes one frame, and each read yields one frame. The poll(2)
system call can be used to check for availability of frames. There are
also a number of ioctl(2) calls to manipulate the device:
Reset the parameters set by IRDA_SET_PARAMS.
IRDA_SET_PARAMS (struct irda_params)
Set the speed, extra beginning of frame bytes, and maximum frame
Get the set of allowable speeds.
Get the set of allowable turn around times.

The irframe driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6.
