ioctl_list — list of ioctl calls in Linux/i386 kernel

Description

This is Ioctl List 1.3.27, a list of ioctl calls in Linux/i386 kernel 1.3.27. It contains 421 ioctls from </usr/include/{asm,linux}/*.h>. For each ioctl, its numerical value, its name, and its argument type are given.

An argument type of const struct foo * means the argument is input to the kernel. struct foo * means the kernel outputs the argument. If the kernel uses the argument for both input and output, this is marked with // I-O.

Some ioctls take more arguments or return more values than a single structure. These are marked // MORE and documented further in a separate section.

This list is very incomplete.

ioctl structure

Ioctl command values are 32-bit constants. In principle these constants are completely arbitrary, but people have tried to build some structure into them.

The old Linux situation was that of mostly 16-bit constants, where the last byte is a serial number, and the preceding byte(s) give a type indicating the driver. Sometimes the major number was used: 0x03 for the HDIO_* ioctls, 0x06 for the LP* ioctls. And sometimes one or more ASCII letters were used. For example, TCGETS has value 0x00005401, with 0x54 = 'T' indicating the terminal driver, and CYGETTIMEOUT has value 0x00435906, with 0x43 0x59 = 'C' 'Y' indicating the cyclades driver.

Later (0.98p5) some more information was built into the number. One has 2 direction bits (00: none, 01: write, 10: read, 11: read/write) followed by 14 size bits (giving the size of the argument), followed by an 8-bit type (collecting the ioctls in groups for a common purpose or a common driver), and an 8-bit serial number.

The macros describing this structure live in <asm/ioctl.h> and are _IO(type,nr) and {_IOR,_IOW,_IOWR}(type,nr,size). They use sizeof(size) so that size is a misnomer here: this third argument is a data type.

Note that the size bits are very unreliable: in lots of cases they are wrong, either because of buggy macros using sizeof(sizeof(struct)), or because of legacy values.

Thus, it seems that the new structure only gave disadvantages: it does not help in checking, but it causes varying values for the various architectures.

Return Value

Decent ioctls return 0 on success and -1 on error, while any output value is stored via the argument. However, quite a few ioctls in fact return an output value. This is not yet indicated below.

// More arguments. Some ioctl's take a pointer to a structure which contains additional pointers. These are documented here in alphabetical order.

CDROMREADAUDIO takes an input pointer const struct cdrom_read_audio *. The buf field points to an output buffer of length nframes * CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW.

CDROMREADCOOKED, CDROMREADMODE1, CDROMREADMODE2, and CDROMREADRAW take an input pointer const struct cdrom_msf *. They use the same pointer as an output pointer to char []. The length varies by request. For CDROMREADMODE1, most drivers use CD_FRAMESIZE, but the Optics Storage driver uses OPT_BLOCKSIZE instead (both have the numerical value 2048).

    CDROMREADCOOKED    char [CD_FRAMESIZE]
    CDROMREADMODE1     char [CD_FRAMESIZE or OPT_BLOCKSIZE]
    CDROMREADMODE2     char [CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW0]
    CDROMREADRAW       char [CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW]

EQL_ENSLAVE, EQL_EMANCIPATE, EQL_GETSLAVECFG, EQL_SETSLAVECFG, EQL_GETMASTERCFG, and EQL_SETMASTERCFG take a struct ifreq *. The ifr_data field is a pointer to another structure as follows:

    EQL_ENSLAVE         const struct slaving_request *
    EQL_EMANCIPATE      const struct slaving_request *
    EQL_GETSLAVECFG     struct slave_config *           // I-O
    EQL_SETSLAVECFG     const struct slave_config *
    EQL_GETMASTERCFG    struct master_config *
    EQL_SETMASTERCFG    const struct master_config *

FDRAWCMD takes a struct floppy raw_cmd *. If flags & FD_RAW_WRITE is nonzero, then data points to an input buffer of length length. If flags & FD_RAW_READ is nonzero, then data points to an output buffer of length length.

GIO_FONTX and PIO_FONTX take a struct console_font_desc * or a const struct console_font_desc *, respectively. chardata points to a buffer of char [charcount]. This is an output buffer for GIO_FONTX and an input buffer for PIO_FONTX.

GIO_UNIMAP and PIO_UNIMAP take a struct unimapdesc * or a const struct unimapdesc *, respectively. entries points to a buffer of struct unipair [entry_ct]. This is an output buffer for GIO_UNIMAP and an input buffer for PIO_UNIMAP.

KDADDIO, KDDELIO, KDDISABIO, and KDENABIO enable or disable access to I/O ports. They are essentially alternate interfaces to 'ioperm'.

KDMAPDISP and KDUNMAPDISP enable or disable memory mappings or I/O port access. They are not implemented in the kernel.

SCSI_IOCTL_PROBE_HOST takes an input pointer const int *, which is a length. It uses the same pointer as an output pointer to a char [] buffer of this length.

SIOCADDRT and SIOCDELRT take an input pointer whose type depends on the protocol:

    Most protocols      const struct rtentry *
    AX.25               const struct ax25_route *
    NET/ROM             const struct nr_route_struct *
    INET6               const struct in6_rtmsg *

SIOCGIFCONF takes a struct ifconf *. The ifc_buf field points to a buffer of length ifc_len bytes, into which the kernel writes a list of type struct ifreq [].

SIOCSIFHWADDR takes an input pointer whose type depends on the protocol:

    Most protocols      const struct ifreq *
    AX.25               const char [AX25_ADDR_LEN]

TIOCLINUX takes a const char *. It uses this to distinguish several independent subcases. In the table below, N + foo means foo after an N-byte pad. struct selection is implicitly defined in drivers/char/selection.c

    TIOCLINUX-2         1 + const struct selection *
    TIOCLINUX-3         void
    TIOCLINUX-4         void
    TIOCLINUX-5         4 + const struct { long [8]; } *
    TIOCLINUX-6         char *
    TIOCLINUX-7         char *
    TIOCLINUX-10        1 + const char *
