Take a reference of a hwdb context.

Parameters

hwdb

context

 

Returns

udev_hwdb_unref ()

struct udev_hwdb *
udev_hwdb_unref (struct udev_hwdb *hwdb);

Drop a reference of a hwdb context. If the refcount reaches zero, all resources of the hwdb context will be released.

Parameters

hwdb

context

 

Returns

NULL


udev_hwdb_new ()

struct udev_list_entry *
udev_hwdb_get_properties_list_entry (struct udev_hwdb *hwdb,
                                     const char *modalias,
                                     unsigned int flags);
