Classification: Connect

Default handler: none

Helper functions: iofunc_mknod()

Client functions: mknod(), mkdir(), mkfifo()

Messages: _IO_CONNECT, subtype _IO_CONNECT_MKNOD

Data structure:

struct _io_connect {
  // internal fields (as described above)
  uint16_t path_len;
  uint8_t  extra_type;
  uint16_t extra_len;
  char     path [1];

struct _io_connect_link_reply {
  uint32_t reserved1;
  uint32_t file_type;
  uint8_t  eflag;
  uint8_t  reserved2[1];
  uint16_t chroot_len;
  uint32_t umask;
  uint16_t nentries;
  uint16_t path_len;

typedef union {
    struct _io_connect                  connect;
    struct _io_connect_link_reply       link_reply;
} io_mknod_t;

Description: Creates a new filesystem entry point. The message is issued to create a file, named by the path member, using the filetype encoded in the mode member (from the "internal fields" part of the struct _io_connect structure, not shown).

This is really used only for the mkfifo(), mkdir(), and mknod() client functions.

Returns: The status via the helper macro _RESMGR_STATUS().
