MEMBERS

work

(internal use) Workqueue to be used for sysfs_notify

udc

struct usb_udc pointer for this gadget

ops

Function pointers used to access hardware-specific operations.

ep0

Endpoint zero, used when reading or writing responses to driver setup requests

ep_list

List of other endpoints supported by the device.

speed

Speed of current connection to USB host.

max_speed

Maximal speed the UDC can handle. UDC must support this and all slower speeds.

state

the state we are now (attached, suspended, configured, etc)

name

Identifies the controller hardware type. Used in diagnostics and sometimes configuration.

dev

Driver model state for this abstract device.

out_epnum

last used out ep number

in_epnum

last used in ep number

mA

last set mA value

otg_caps

OTG capabilities of this gadget.

sg_supported

true if we can handle scatter-gather

is_otg

True if the USB device port uses a Mini-AB jack, so that the gadget driver must provide a USB OTG descriptor.

is_a_peripheral

False unless is_otg, the "A" end of a USB cable is in the Mini-AB jack, and HNP has been used to switch roles so that the "A" device currently acts as A-Peripheral, not A-Host.

b_hnp_enable

OTG device feature flag, indicating that the A-Host enabled HNP support.

a_hnp_support

OTG device feature flag, indicating that the A-Host supports HNP at this port.

a_alt_hnp_support

OTG device feature flag, indicating that the A-Host only supports HNP on a different root port.

hnp_polling_support

OTG device feature flag, indicating if the OTG device in peripheral mode can support HNP polling.

host_request_flag

OTG device feature flag, indicating if A-Peripheral or B-Peripheral wants to take host role.

quirk_ep_out_aligned_size

epout requires buffer size to be aligned to MaxPacketSize.

quirk_avoids_skb_reserve

udc/platform wants to avoid skb_reserve in u_ether.c to improve performance.

is_selfpowered

if the gadget is self-powered.

deactivated

True if gadget is deactivated - in deactivated state it cannot be connected.

connected

True if gadget is connected.

DESCRIPTION

Gadgets have a mostly-portable "gadget driver" implementing device functions, handling all usb configurations and interfaces. Gadget drivers talk to hardware-specific code indirectly, through ops vectors. That insulates the gadget driver from hardware details, and packages the hardware endpoints through generic i/o queues. The "usb_gadget" and "usb_ep" interfaces provide that insulation from the hardware.

Except for the driver data, all fields in this structure are read-only to the gadget driver. That driver data is part of the "driver model" infrastructure in 2.6 (and later) kernels, and for earlier systems is grouped in a similar structure that's not known to the rest of the kernel.

Values of the three OTG device feature flags are updated before the setup call corresponding to USB_REQ_SET_CONFIGURATION, and before driver suspend calls. They are valid only when is_otg, and when the device is acting as a B-Peripheral (so is_a_peripheral is false).
