UFETCH(9)              NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual              UFETCH(9)


NAME
ufetch, ufetch_8, ufetch_16, ufetch_32, ufetch_64, ufetch_char, ufetch_short, ufetch_int, ufetch_long, ufetch_ptr -- fetch data from user-space
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/systm.h> int ufetch_8(const uint8_t *uaddr, uint8_t *valp); int ufetch_16(const uint16_t *uaddr, uint16_t *valp); int ufetch_32(const uint32_t *uaddr, uint32_t *valp); int ufetch_64(const uint64_t *uaddr, uint64_t *valp); int ufetch_char(const unsigned char *uaddr, unsigned char *valp); int ufetch_short(const unsigned short *uaddr, unsigned short *valp); int ufetch_int(const unsigned int *uaddr, unsigned int *valp); int ufetch_long(const unsigned long *uaddr, unsigned long *valp); int ufetch_ptr(const void **uaddr, void **valp);
DESCRIPTION
The ufetch functions provide a way to fetch the values of single memory cells from user-space. In each case, the value referenced by the user- space address uaddr is retrieved and stored at the kernel memory location referenced by valp. The ufetch_64 function is only available on systems employing the `LP64' memory model, which can be determined by testing for the presence of the _LP64 C preprocessor macro.
RETURN VALUES
The ufetch functions return 0 on success and an error number on failure.
