NAME

skb_queue_head_init - prepare an sk_buff_head for use  

SYNOPSIS

#include <linux/skbuff.h>
void skb_queue_head_init(struct sk_buff_head *list);
 

DESCRIPTION

The skb_queue_head_init function prepares an sk_buff_head for use by the other skb_ functions, and should be called after declaring and allocating memory for any sk_buff_head elements. Specifically, skb_queue_head_init sets the prev and next pointers of the list to point back at the list itself, and sets the list length to 0. The use of sk_buff_head elements which have not been initialized with this function is undocumented and may produce irregular results.  

RETURN VALUE

None.
