DRIVER_FIND_DEVICE(9) Device drivers infrastructure DRIVER_FIND_DEVICE(9)

NAME driver_find_device - device iterator for locating a particular device.

SYNOPSIS struct device * driver_find_device(struct device_driver * drv, struct device * start, void * data, int (*match) (struct device *dev, void *data));

ARGUMENTS drv The device´s driver

start Device to begin with

data Data to pass to match function

match Callback function to check device

DESCRIPTION This is similar to the driver_for_each_device function above, but it returns a reference to a device that is ´found´ for later use, as determined by the match callback.

The callback should return 0 if the device doesn´t match and non-zero if it does. If the callback returns non-zero, this function will return to the caller and not iterate over any more devices.
