Blocking Netlink calls
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Hi,I have a kernel module that acts as a Generic Netlink server. In the user space I have a daemon which receives Netlink unicast messages from the kernel module using the libnl library .
What I'd like to know is if it's possible to send a Netlink message in a blocking manner and to get a direct result back from the daemon. As far as I understand the Netlink concept it is a bus-like system and thus I'm not sure if it's possible at all.
Currently my call to send the message to the user space is as follows: ... rc = genlmsg_unicast(skb, daemon_pid); ... Thanks Yves  http://www.infradead.org/~tgr/libnl/
