struct trb *talloc()
The talloc kernel service allocates a timer request block. The user must call it before starting a timer request with the tstart kernel service. If successful, the talloc service returns a pointer to a pinned timer request block.
The talloc kernel service can be called from the process environment only.
The talloc service returns a pointer to a timer request block upon successful allocation of a trb structure. Upon failure, a null value is returned.
The talloc kernel service is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The tfree kernel service, tstart kernel service, tstop kernel service.
