AIX Version 4.3 Understanding the Diagnostic Subsystem for AIX



The pdiag_dd_dma_complete() function unpins and detaches the user space DMA buffer. If the handle's dds.bus_type is set for the Micro Channel, this function also calls the d_complete() kernel service, which checks for detected IOCC errors, flushes the IOCC buffer (unhides it if necessary) and sets the page table 'modified' bit if the information was modified.


#include <sys/pdiagex_dds.h>
int32 pdiag_dd_dma_complete( handle, daddr, operation )
pdiag_info_handle_t  handle; 
pdiag_addr_t  daddr;
uint32 operation;


The following is performed by the pdiag_dd_dma_complete depending on the bus type and operation:

Where bus type = BUS_MICRO_CHANNEL and operation is PDIAG_DMA_MASTER or PDIAG_DMA_SLAVE

Execution Environment

The pdiag_dd_dma_complete() function can be called from the process or the interrupt environment on a BUS_MICRO_CHANNEL system. The function can only be called from the process environment on a BUS_BID system.


handle Points to pdiag_info_handle_t structure which is returned from pdiag_open().
daddr The offset into the user's physical DMA address. This is returned by pdiag_dd_dma_setup () routine. For DMA slave completes, this should be set to 0.
operation Type of operation to perform:

Return Value

The pdiag_dd_dma_complete function returns one of the following values:

DGX_OK The operation was successful. The errno is not set.
DGX_INVALID_HANDLE Specified handle has been closed or was not generated by the pdiag_open() call. The errno is not set.
DGX_BADVAL_FAIL daddr value was not valid. The errno is not set.
DGX_DCOMPLETE_FAIL Application received a DMA error detected by the system hardware. The errno is set to the d_complete() return code.
DGX_UNPINU_FAIL Application could not unpin the specified user buffer. The errno is set to the unpinu() return code.
DGX_XMDETACH_FAIL Application could not detach user space from the physical address. The errno is set to the xmdetach() return code.
