1. NAME

scsi_get_vpd_page - Get Vital Product Data from a SCSI device

2. SYNOPSIS

int scsi_get_vpd_page(struct scsi_device *  sdev , u8  page , unsigned char *  buf , int  buf_len );

3. ARGUMENTS

sdev
    The device to ask

page
    Which Vital Product Data to return

buf
    where to store the VPD

buf_len
    number of bytes in the VPD buffer area

4. DESCRIPTION

SCSI devices may optionally supply Vital Product Data. Each AqpageAq of VPD is defined in the appropriate SCSI document (eg SPC, SBC). If the device supports this VPD page, this routine returns a pointer to a buffer containing the data from that page. The caller is responsible for calling kfree on this pointer when it is no longer needed. If we cannot retrieve the VPD page this routine returns NULL.
