1. NAME

struct_irb - interruption response block

2. SYNOPSIS



 
Sélectionnez
struct irb {
  union scsw scsw;
  union esw;
  __u8 ecw[32];
};

3. MEMBERS

scsw
    subchannel status word

esw
    extened status word

ecw[32]
    extended control word

4. DESCRIPTION

The irb that is handed to the device driver when an interrupt occurs. For solicited interrupts, the common I/O layer already performs checks whether a field is valid; a field not being valid is always passed as 0. If a unit check occurred, ecw may contain sense data; this is retrieved by the common I/O layer itself if the device doesnAqt support concurrent sense (so that the device driver never needs to perform basic sene itself). For unsolicited interrupts, the irb is passed as-is (expect for sense data, if applicable).
