poll_wait - wait for selectable event to be ready
void poll_wait(structwait_queue**sync, poll_table*pt)
This function is used in support of the poll device driver entry
point. The intent is for a device driver to put
into the poll table immediately entering the device poll routine, then
returning a bit mask of events that are currently ready. The kernel
looks at the mask of events to see if something it needs is ready, and
suspends the process if not.
static unsigned int xxpoll(struct file*file, poll_table*pt)
if (data_in.cnt > 0) return POLLIN | POLLRDNORM;
else return 0;
This example shows the basic use of
in a device driver poll function.
