SYNOPSIS

int gnet_stats_start_copy_compat(struct sk_buff skb, int type, int tc_stats_type, int xstats_type, spinlock_t lock, struct gnet_dump d, int padattr);

ARGUMENTS

skb

socket buffer to put statistics TLVs into

type

TLV type for top level statistic TLV

tc_stats_type

TLV type for backward compatibility struct tc_stats TLV

xstats_type

TLV type for backward compatibility xstats TLV

lock

padattr

DESCRIPTION

Initializes the dumping handle, grabs the statistic lock and appends an empty TLV header to the socket buffer for use a container for all other statistic TLVS.

The dumping handle is marked to be in backward compatibility mode telling all gnet_stats_copy_XXX functions to fill a local copy of struct tc_stats.

Returns 0 on success or -1 if the room in the socket buffer was not sufficient.
