NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ng_h4 -- Netgraph node type that is also an H4 line discipline

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <netgraph/bluetooth/include/ng_h4.h>

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The h4 node type is both a persistent Netgraph node type and a H4 line
     discipline.  It implements a Bluetooth HCI UART transport layer as per
     chapter H4 of the Bluetooth Specification Book v1.1.  A new node is created
 when the corresponding line discipline, H4DISC, is registered on a
     tty device (see tty(4)).

     The node has a single hook called hook.  Incoming bytes received on the
     tty device are re-assembled into HCI frames (according to the length).
     Full HCI frames are sent out on the hook.	HCI frames received on hook
     are transmitted out on the tty device.  No modification to the data is
     performed in either direction.  While the line discipline is installed on
     a tty, the normal read and write operations are unavailable, returning

     Information about the node is available via the netgraph ioctl(2) command
     NGIOCGINFO.  This command returns a struct nodeinfo similar to the
     NGM_NODEINFO netgraph(4) control message.

HOOKS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node type supports the following hooks:

     hook    single HCI frame contained in single mbuf structure.

CONTROL MESSAGES    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node type supports the generic control messages, plus the following:

	     Reset the node.

	     Returns current receiving state for the node.

	     Returns an integer containing the current debug level for the

	     This command takes an integer argument and sets current debug
	     level for the node.

	     Returns current length of outgoing queue for the node.

	     This command takes an integer argument and sets maximum length of
	     outgoing queue for the node.

	     Returns various statistic information for the node, such as: number
 of bytes (frames) sent, number of bytes (frames) received and
	     number of input (output) errors.

	     Reset all statistic counters to zero.

SHUTDOWN    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node shuts down when the corresponding device is closed (or the line
     discipline is uninstalled on the device).

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node still uses spltty(9) to lock tty layer.	This is wrong.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The h4 node type was implemented in FreeBSD 5.0.
