Thread-topic: getbmap!!!!!!!

To Developers ,


Please provide me some description regarding the xfs_getbmap what it suppose to do , suppose I want to create a fiule and write on it I got the inode of file then what fields I will send to the xfs getbmap (called via xfs_ioc_getbmapx ) ,

-          What fields of getbmapx structure will be initialized  before passing in the xfs_ioc_getbmapx ?

-          What it will do after passing the fields (Function overview if possible)

-          Why the arg+1 is being passed in the xfs_ioc_getbmapx

I know the reason of formatter






        Copy_to_user() ; // why the copying done here as in the function itself for every entry it is copying the information into user buffer then why outside the function call here it needs the copy again



Thanks & Best Regards
