vmo_op_range - perform an operation on a range of a VMO


#include <magenta/syscalls.h>

mx_status_t mx_vmo_op_range(mx_handle_t handle, uint32_t op,
                            uint64_t offset, uint64_t size,
                            void* buffer, size_t buffer_size);


vmo_op_range() performs cache and memory operations against pages held by the VMO.

offset byte offset specifying the starting location for op in the VMO's held memory.

size length, in bytes, to perform the operation on.

op the operation to perform:

buffer and buffer_size are used to store the addresses returned by MX_VMO_OP_LOOKUP.

MX_VMO_OP_COMMIT - Commit size bytes worth of pages starting at byte offset for the VMO. More information can be found in the vm object documentation.

MX_VMO_OP_DECOMMIT - Release a range of pages previously commited to the VMO from offset to offset+size.

MX_VMO_OP_LOCK - Presently unsupported.

MX_VMO_OP_UNLOCK - Presently unsupported.

MX_VMO_OP_LOOKUP - Returns a list of physical addresses (paddr_t) corresponding to the pages held by the VMO from offset to offset+size. The result is stored in buffer, up to buffer_size bytes. The returned physical addresses are aligned to page boundaries. So if the provided offset is not page aligned, the first physical address returned will match the beginning of the page containing the offset, not the actual physical address corresponding to the offset.

MX_VMO_OP_CACHE_SYNC - Performs a cache sync operation.

MX_VMO_OP_CACHE_INVALIDATE - Performs a cache invalidation operation.

MX_VMO_OP_CACHE_CLEAN - Performs a cache clean operation.

MX_VMO_OP_CACHE_CLEAN_INVALIDATE - Performs cache clean and invalidate operations together.


vmo_op_range() returns MX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.


MX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE handle is not a valid handle.

MX_ERR_OUT_OF_RANGE An invalid memory range specified by offset and size.

MX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Allocations to commit pages for MX_VMO_OP_COMMIT failed.

MX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE handle is not a VMO handle.

MX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS out is an invalid pointer, op is not a valid operation, op is MX_VMO_LOOPUP and buffer is an invalid pointer, or size is zero and op is a cache operation.
