Programming :: Passing Data Between Kernel Space To User Space In Asynchronous Way

Dec 13, 2010

I am developing a I2C CDROM client driver. The CDROM firmware supports TOC information read through a I2C command. It sends the TOC information in burst ( Interrupts a GPIO pin when it is ready ) and my CPU does a I2C read to read the TOC. When the CDROM firmware finishes sending the last data burst , it informs my CPU that it is done with the TOC, by a flag in the last data burst. I would like to know, which is the most efficinet way I can send these TOC information to userspace?

Programming :: Function In Kernel Space Called Form User Space

Jul 7, 2009

I wanna write a file in kernel space but from my searching I can to know that instead of writeing file in kernel space ,I can write data to user space by copy_to_user space.

But link is missing ...I dont know how will my user space will access kernel space means my function in kernel space which will do copy_to_user /....How my user space function will call my kernel level function ..

Can any one of you provide me with some example file which are doing this .I know every char driver is using it ...but i could not trace back how user level function is accessing it ...i m confused between user space and kernel space.

Programming :: Signal From Kernel Space To User Space?

Jul 21, 2011

I have the following requirement in my module. The driver gets some data from the external device. After getting 1MB of data it has to send it to the user space application. What is the best thing to implement for this in driver.? Is it ok to implement like, after getting data, the driver will send a signal to the user space application. Then the user space application sends an ioctl to read the data. Is there any alternate, that the driver directly sends the data without the user space application asks for it.?

General :: Division Of Logical Memory Space In To User Space And Kernel Space

Jan 4, 2010

Logical Memory Space of 4GB is divided in to 3GB User Space and 1GB Kernel Space. Always. Correct?

1. How can we change it? (just changing value of PAGE_OFFSET is okay?)

2. If system have only 256MB of memory (embedded system) and suppose Kernel Modules eat away all the memory during boot. User space will be left will no memory. Is this case possible?

General :: Virtual Space Seen By Each New Process In User Space?

Jun 21, 2010

In a 32-bit system, max memory addressable is 4GB. Now Linux kernel does memory mapping division of 1GB for kernel address space and 3GB for user address space. That means 4GB of virtual address space is divided between kernel (1GB) and user (3GB).

Q1. All virtual mapping utilizes the available physical RAM without any division? I mean to say that if RAM is 512MB then a page in kernel space can lie any where RAM (leave aside old PCI dma accesses)? (How this fits to fact that kernel memory is non-pageble)

Q2. If a process is created in user space, it has visibility 4GB address space or 3GB address space?

General :: Kernel Module Run In It / User Space?

Oct 25, 2010

I'm pretty new to this whole (micro)kernel architecture story.

Im wondering if a kernel module is running in kernel or in user space?

Is a driver running as kernel module slower than a driver build into kernel?
If so, are there some current articles, benchmarks?

Programming :: Vmsplice And Splice Usage In User Space?

Jun 10, 2009

I'm using vmsplice & splice to send memory buffers through a TCP socket. I have two issues using these methods:

1) According to the documentation, when using vmsplice with the flag SPLICE_F_GIFT, you cannot modify the buffer you've "given" the kernel. Currently, each time I want to send a buffer, I have to allocate a page-aligned buffer (fill it with data) and send it using vmsplice- splice. When can I deallocate this buffer? Is it possible to modify this buffer after the buffer is sent through the socket?

2) The buffer should be page-aligned both in memory and in length, but most of the time the sent messages (to the TCP socket) - are smaller than a page size - is it possible to "clear" the pipe from the remaining buffer?

Programming :: RTS Toggling In Serial Port From Kernel Space?

Jan 29, 2010

Driven by my needs , i need to toggle only the flow control (RTS, CTS) bits and have nothing to do with the rest of the functionality (e.g. normaltx , rx operation). I am presuming that there exists a line discipline from user space for toggling RTS as ioctl (*file, cmd, *unsigned long ) can be used easily to toggle RTS. However, the use of IOCTL in kernel space for the same purpose brings about no change on RTS (oscilloscope shows no change). google led me to this [URL] and according to that i should make changes directly in the driver.

Code:

int x=0;
int actual_module()
{ int k;
mm_segment_t oldfs;

[code]....

Programming :: Simulate A Serial Protocol In User Space Program To Test Reception Algorithm?

Jul 28, 2010

I want to simulate a serial protocol in user space program to test reception algorithm. The protocol is similar to UART protocol but frame format is different. The duration of 1 bit is 114,46 us. In my main function I'm creating two threads. Tx for simulating transmitting data and Rx for reception data. For measure time I use create_timer() function and signals. Each thread has its own timer and signal handler. Tx timer uses SIGUSR1 and Rx timer uses SIGUSR2. Tx thread sets the global variable and Rx reads it.

The timers are set to sample with 114,46 us period. When they reach this value signal handler should set the flag. Flag is check in thread and some operation are made. When I set the timers period for longer time (100 ms) everything works fine but when I change it to default value (114,46 us) the Rx thread doesn't receive the proper data. I am wondering if the 114,46 timer period is possible to simulate in user space? Whether the time will give me the proper resolution ? Theoretically it should provide 1 ns resolution.

Programming :: Passing Data Between Php And C

Aug 21, 2010

I'm trying to work out the best way to achieve the following.

1)php page that grabs data from a local database. (not a problem)

2)It then needs to send this data to a c program/service running on a remote server. (I probably need it to be able to handle 4+ million reocrds in an array)

3) The c service then needs to process the data and send it back to the initial php script that called it. i was hoping this could be in a an array like structure of some kind. 4)update the db with the results.

I was thinking of using gsoap to write a simple c soap service that php can communicate with. Would this be the right way of doing this or would something like sockets in php be a better way of sending this volume of data as an array or struct to linux c socket if thats even possible.

Slackware :: Disk Space Lost- Root Partition Has Very Little Space Left

Jan 31, 2010

Today I was installing a lot of software since I'm just setting up my Slackware system again after a fresh install, and I realized that my root partition has very little space left.

Here is the output of df -h:


Code:

As you can see, I have a 20G (19G here for some reason) root partition, 8G /var, and 86G of /home. I thought this would be plenty since many recent recommendations for / are 10-15G. Now, though, 17G are used up for some reason! How is this possible? I thought a full slackware install only had about 4G of software! I don't have any music or movies or any crazy huge files that I know of, and those would be in my /home directory anyway. Is there any way I can see which files are taking up all this space?

If it's necessary to allocate more space to my / partition, is it still possible to boot up a GParted live Cd, shrink /home a bit, move some partitions to the right, and expand my root partition? I would REALLY prefer I don't have to reinstall since I just spent a ton of time setting up my system again, but if worst comes to worst ... :'-(

In case you're curious, here's my /etc/fstab:
