Function Documentation



◆ urealloc()

userptr_t urealloc ( userptr_t  userptr,
size_t  new_size 

Reallocate external memory.

userptrMemory previously allocated by umalloc(), or UNULL
new_sizeRequested size
Return values
userptrAllocated memory, or UNULL

Calling realloc() with a new size of zero is a valid way to free a memory block.

Referenced by image_set_len(), ufree(), umalloc(), umalloc_test(), and xferbuf_umalloc_realloc().

◆ umalloc()

static __always_inline userptr_t umalloc ( size_t  size)

Allocate external memory.

sizeRequested size
Return values
userptrMemory, or UNULL

Memory is guaranteed to be aligned to a page boundary.

Definition at line 54 of file umalloc.h.

54  {
55  return urealloc ( UNULL, size );
56 }
userptr_t urealloc(userptr_t userptr, size_t new_size)
Reallocate external memory.
#define UNULL
Equivalent of NULL for user pointers.
Definition: uaccess.h:36
uint8_t size
Entry size (in 32-bit words)
Definition: ena.h:16

◆ ufree()

static __always_inline void ufree ( userptr_t  userptr)

Free external memory.

userptrMemory allocated by umalloc(), or UNULL

If ptr is UNULL, no action is taken.

Definition at line 65 of file umalloc.h.

65  {
66  urealloc ( userptr, 0 );
67 }
userptr_t urealloc(userptr_t userptr, size_t new_size)
Reallocate external memory.
