NAMEs390_sthyi - emulate STHYI instruction
#include <asm/unistd.h> int s390_sthyi(unsigned long function_code, void *resp_buffer, uint64_t *return_code, unsigned long flags);
DESCRIPTIONThe s390_sthyi() system call emulates the STHYI (Store Hypervisor Information) instruction. It provides hardware resource information for the machine and its virtualization levels. This includes CPU type and capacity, as well as the machine model and other metrics.
The function_code argument indicates which function to perform. The following code(s) are supported:
- Return CP (Central Processor) and IFL (Integrated Facility for Linux) capacity information.
The resp_buffer argument specifies the address of a response buffer. If the system call returns 0, the response buffer will be filled with CPU capacity information. Otherwise, the response buffer's content is unchanged.
The return_code argument stores the return code of the STHYI instruction, using one of the following values:
- Unsupported function code.
For further details about return_code, function_code, and resp_buffer, see the reference given in NOTES.
The flags argument is provided to allow for future extensions and currently must be set to 0.
RETURN VALUEOn success (that is: emulation succeeded), the return value of s390_sthyi() matches the condition code of the STHYI instructions, which is a value in the range [0..3]. A return value of 0 indicates that CPU capacity information is stored in *resp_buffer. A return value of 3 indicates "unsupported function code" and the content of *resp_buffer is unchanged. The return values 1 and 2 are reserved.
On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
- The value specified in resp_buffer or return_code is not a valid address.
- The value specified in flags is nonzero.
- Allocating memory for handling the CPU capacity information failed.
- The value specified in function_code is not valid.
VERSIONSThis system call is available since Linux 4.15.
CONFORMING TOThis Linux-specific system call is available only on the s390 architecture.
NOTESGlibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call, use syscall(2) to call it.
