NAME

__skb_queue_tail, skb_queue_tail - insert an sk_buff at the tail of a list  

SYNOPSIS

#include <linux/skbuff.h>
void __skb_queue_tail(struct sk_buff_head *list, struct sk_buff *newsk);
void skb_queue_tail(struct sk_buff_head *list, struct sk_buff *newsk);
 

DESCRIPTION

The skb_queue_tail function adds newsk to the tail of list. Specifically, it sets the list, next, and prev pointers in newsk, and increments the qlen element of list.  

RETURN VALUE

None.  

NOTES

It is important to note the difference between not only __skb_queue_tail and skb_queue_tail, but all the __skb_ functions and their skb_ counterparts. Essentially, the __skb_ functions are non-atomic, and should only be used with interrupts disabled. As a convenience, the skb_ functions are provided, which perform interrupt disable / enable wrapper functionality in addition to performing their specific tasks.  

AVAILABILITY

Linux 1.0+
