Series [v2,1/4] drm/i915/uapi: fix kernel doc warnings | expand

Commit Message

Matthew Auld April 19, 2021, 10:57 a.m. UTC
Add a note about the two-step process.

v2(Tvrtko):
  - Also document the other method of just passing in a buffer which is
    large enough, which avoids two ioctl calls. Can make sense for
    smaller query items.
v3: prefer kernel-doc references for structs and members

+ *
+ * Note that this is generally a two step process for each struct

+ *
+ * 1. Call the DRM_IOCTL_I915_QUERY, giving it our array of struct

+ *    kernel will then fill in the size, in bytes, which tells userspace how
+ *    memory it needs to allocate for the blob(say for an array of properties).
+ *
+ * 2. Next we call DRM_IOCTL_I915_QUERY again, this time with the
+ *    &drm_i915_query_item.data_ptr equal to our newly allocated blob. Note that
+ *    the &drm_i915_query_item.length should still be the same as what the
+ *    kernel previously set. At this point the kernel can fill in the blob.
+ *
+ * Note that for some query items it can make sense for userspace to just pass
+ * in a buffer/blob equal to or larger than the required size. In this case only
+ * a single ioctl call is needed. For some smaller query items this can work
+ * quite well.
