Subject[PATCH v5 2/2] [DVB][FRONTEND] Added a new ioctl for optimizing frontend property set operation
Date
-For setting one frontend property , one FE_SET_PROPERTY ioctl is called
-Since, size of struct dtv_property is 72 bytes, this ioctl requires
---allocating 72 bytes of memory in user space
---allocating 72 bytes of memory in kernel space
---copying 72 bytes of data from user space to kernel space
-However, for all the properties, only 8 out of 72 bytes are used
for setting the property
-Four bytes are needed for specifying property type and another 4 for
property value
-Moreover, there are 2 properties DTV_CLEAR and DTV_TUNE which use
only 4 bytes for property name
---They don't use property value
-Therefore, we have defined new short variant/forms/version of currently
used structures for such 8 byte properties.
-This results in 89% (8*100/72) of memory saving in user and kernel space
each.
-This also results in faster copy (8 bytes as compared to 72 bytes) from
user to kernel space
-We have added new ioctl FE_SET_PROPERTY_SHORT which utilizes above
mentioned new property structures
-This ioctl can co-exist with present ioctl FE_SET_PROPERTY
-If the apps wish to use shorter forms they can use
proposed FE_SET_PROPERTY_SHORT, rest of them can continue to use
current versions FE_SET_PROPERTY
