zx_interrupt_create

NAME

Create an interrupt object.

SYNOPSIS

#include <zircon/syscalls.h>

zx_status_t zx_interrupt_create(zx_handle_t src_obj,
                                uint32_t src_num,
                                uint32_t options,
                                zx_handle_t* out_handle);

DESCRIPTION

zx_interrupt_create() creates an interrupt object which represents a physical or virtual interrupt.

If options is ZX_INTERRUPT_VIRTUAL, src_obj and src_num are ignored and a virtual interrupt is returned.

Otherwise src_obj must be a suitable resource for creating platform interrupts or a PCI object, and src_num is the associated interrupt number. This restricts the creation of interrupts to the internals of the DDK (driver development kit). Physical interrupts are obtained by drivers through various DDK APIs.

Physical interrupts honor the options ZX_INTERRUPT_EDGE_LOW, ZX_INTERRUPT_EDGE_HIGH, ZX_INTERRUPT_LEVEL_LOW, ZX_INTERRUPT_LEVEL_HIGH, and ZX_INTERRUPT_REMAP_IRQ.

The handles will have ZX_RIGHT_INSPECT, ZX_RIGHT_DUPLICATE, ZX_RIGHT_TRANSFER (allowing them to be sent to another process via zx_channel_write()), ZX_RIGHT_READ, ZX_RIGHT_WRITE (required for zx_interrupt_ack()), ZX_RIGHT_WAIT (required for zx_interrupt_wait(), and ZX_RIGHT_SIGNAL (required for zx_interrupt_trigger()).

Interrupts are said to be "triggered" when the underlying physical interrupt occurs or when zx_interrupt_trigger() is called on a virtual interrupt. A triggered interrupt, when bound to a port with zx_interrupt_bind(), causes a packet to be delivered to the port.

If not bound to a port, an interrupt object may be waited on with zx_interrupt_wait().

Interrupts cannot be waited on with the zx_object_wait_ family of calls.

RIGHTS

src_obj must have resource kind ZX_RSRC_KIND_IRQ.

RETURN VALUE

zx_interrupt_create() returns ZX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.

ERRORS

ZX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE the src_obj handle is invalid (if this is not a virtual interrupt)

ZX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE the src_obj handle is not of an appropriate type to create an interrupt.

ZX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED the src_obj handle does not allow this operation.

ZX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS options contains invalid flags or the out_handle parameter is an invalid pointer.

ZX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Failure due to lack of memory. There is no good way for userspace to handle this (unlikely) error. In a future build this error will no longer occur.
