BUS_BIND_INTR(9)	 BSD Kernel Developer's Manual	      BUS_BIND_INTR(9)

NAME
     BUS_BIND_INTR, bus_bind_intr — bind an interrupt resource to a specific
     CPU

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/bus.h>

     int
     BUS_BIND_INTR(device_t dev, device_t child, struct resource *irq,
	 int cpu);

     int
     bus_bind_intr(device_t dev, struct resource *irq, int cpu);

DESCRIPTION
     The BUS_BIND_INTR() method allows an interrupt resource to be pinned to a
     specific CPU.  The interrupt resource must have an interrupt handler
     attached via BUS_SETUP_INTR(9).  The cpu parameter corresponds to the ID
     of a valid CPU in the system.  Binding an interrupt restricts the
     cpuset(2) of any associated interrupt threads to only include the speci‐
     fied CPU.	It may also direct the low-level interrupt handling of the
     interrupt to the specified CPU as well, but this behavior is platform-
     dependent.	 If the value NOCPU is used for cpu, then the interrupt will
     be “unbound” which restores any associated interrupt threads back to the
     default cpuset.

     Non-sleepable locks such as mutexes should not be held across calls to
     these functions.

     The bus_bind_intr() function is a simple wrapper around BUS_BIND_INTR().

     Note that currently there is no attempt made to arbitrate between multi‐
     ple bind requests for the same interrupt from either the same device or
     multiple devices.	There is also no arbitration between interrupt binding
     requests submitted by userland via cpuset(2) and BUS_BIND_INTR().	The
     most recent binding request is the one that will be in effect.

HISTORY
     The BUS_BIND_INTR() method and bus_bind_intr() functions first appeared
     in FreeBSD 7.2.
