Subject[PATCH v3 21/29] docs: filesystems: split spufs.txt into 3 separate files
Date
This file has manpages for 3 different things. As we'll
be converting it to ReST, let's fist split it into their
individual components.

+SPU_CREATE(2) Linux Programmer's Manual SPU_CREATE(2)
+
+
+
+NAME
+ spu_create - create a new spu context
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+ #include <sys/types.h>
+ #include <sys/spu.h>
+
+ int spu_create(const char *pathname, int flags, mode_t mode);
+
+DESCRIPTION
+ The spu_create system call is used on PowerPC machines that implement
+ the Cell Broadband Engine Architecture in order to access Synergistic
+ Processor Units (SPUs). It creates a new logical context for an SPU in
+ pathname and returns a handle to associated with it. pathname must
+ point to a non-existing directory in the mount point of the SPU file
+ system (spufs). When spu_create is successful, a directory gets cre-
+ ated on pathname and it is populated with files.
+
+ The returned file handle can only be passed to spu_run(2) or closed,
+ other operations are not defined on it. When it is closed, all associ-
+ ated directory entries in spufs are removed. When the last file handle
+ pointing either inside of the context directory or to this file
+ descriptor is closed, the logical SPU context is destroyed.
+
+ The parameter flags can be zero or any bitwise or'd combination of the
+ following constants:
+
+ SPU_RAWIO
+ Allow mapping of some of the hardware registers of the SPU into
+ user space. This flag requires the CAP_SYS_RAWIO capability, see
+ capabilities(7).
+
+ The mode parameter specifies the permissions used for creating the new
+ directory in spufs. mode is modified with the user's umask(2) value
+ and then used for both the directory and the files contained in it. The
+ file permissions mask out some more bits of mode because they typically
+ support only read or write access. See stat(2) for a full list of the
+ possible mode values.
+
+
+RETURN VALUE
+ spu_create returns a new file descriptor. It may return -1 to indicate
+ an error condition and set errno to one of the error codes listed
+ below.
+
+
+ERRORS
+ EACCES
+ The current user does not have write access on the spufs mount
+ point.
+
+ EEXIST An SPU context already exists at the given path name.
+
+ EFAULT pathname is not a valid string pointer in the current address
+ space.
+
+ EINVAL pathname is not a directory in the spufs mount point.
+
+ ELOOP Too many symlinks were found while resolving pathname.
+
+ EMFILE The process has reached its maximum open file limit.
+
+ ENAMETOOLONG
+ pathname was too long.
+
+ ENFILE The system has reached the global open file limit.
+
+ ENOENT Part of pathname could not be resolved.
+
+ ENOMEM The kernel could not allocate all resources required.
+
+ ENOSPC There are not enough SPU resources available to create a new
+ context or the user specific limit for the number of SPU con-
+ texts has been reached.
+
+ ENOSYS the functionality is not provided by the current system, because
+ either the hardware does not provide SPUs or the spufs module is
+ not loaded.
+
+ ENOTDIR
+ A part of pathname is not a directory.
+
+
+
+NOTES
+ spu_create is meant to be used from libraries that implement a more
+ abstract interface to SPUs, not to be used from regular applications.
+ See http://www.bsc.es/projects/deepcomputing/linuxoncell/ for the rec-
+ ommended libraries.
+
+
+FILES
+ pathname must point to a location beneath the mount point of spufs. By
+ convention, it gets mounted in /spu.
+
+
+CONFORMING TO
+ This call is Linux specific and only implemented by the ppc64 architec-
+ ture. Programs using this system call are not portable.

+SPU_RUN(2) Linux Programmer's Manual SPU_RUN(2)
+
+
+
+NAME
+ spu_run - execute an spu context
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+ #include <sys/spu.h>
+
+ int spu_run(int fd, unsigned int *npc, unsigned int *event);
+
+DESCRIPTION
+ The spu_run system call is used on PowerPC machines that implement the
+ Cell Broadband Engine Architecture in order to access Synergistic Pro-
+ cessor Units (SPUs). It uses the fd that was returned from spu_cre-
+ ate(2) to address a specific SPU context. When the context gets sched-
+ uled to a physical SPU, it starts execution at the instruction pointer
+ passed in npc.
+
+ Execution of SPU code happens synchronously, meaning that spu_run does
+ not return while the SPU is still running. If there is a need to exe-
+ cute SPU code in parallel with other code on either the main CPU or
+ other SPUs, you need to create a new thread of execution first, e.g.
+ using the pthread_create(3) call.
+
+ When spu_run returns, the current value of the SPU instruction pointer
+ is written back to npc, so you can call spu_run again without updating
+ the pointers.
+
+ event can be a NULL pointer or point to an extended status code that
+ gets filled when spu_run returns. It can be one of the following con-
+ stants:
+
+ SPE_EVENT_DMA_ALIGNMENT
+ A DMA alignment error
+
+ SPE_EVENT_SPE_DATA_SEGMENT
+ A DMA segmentation error
+
+ SPE_EVENT_SPE_DATA_STORAGE
+ A DMA storage error
+
+ If NULL is passed as the event argument, these errors will result in a
+ signal delivered to the calling process.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+ spu_run returns the value of the spu_status register or -1 to indicate
+ an error and set errno to one of the error codes listed below. The
+ spu_status register value contains a bit mask of status codes and
+ optionally a 14 bit code returned from the stop-and-signal instruction
+ on the SPU. The bit masks for the status codes are:
+
+ 0x02 SPU was stopped by stop-and-signal.
+
+ 0x04 SPU was stopped by halt.
+
+ 0x08 SPU is waiting for a channel.
+
+ 0x10 SPU is in single-step mode.
+
+ 0x20 SPU has tried to execute an invalid instruction.
+
+ 0x40 SPU has tried to access an invalid channel.
+
+ 0x3fff0000
+ The bits masked with this value contain the code returned from
+ stop-and-signal.
+
+ There are always one or more of the lower eight bits set or an error
+ code is returned from spu_run.
+
+ERRORS
+ EAGAIN or EWOULDBLOCK
+ fd is in non-blocking mode and spu_run would block.
+
+ EBADF fd is not a valid file descriptor.
+
+ EFAULT npc is not a valid pointer or status is neither NULL nor a valid
+ pointer.
+
+ EINTR A signal occurred while spu_run was in progress. The npc value
+ has been updated to the new program counter value if necessary.
+
+ EINVAL fd is not a file descriptor returned from spu_create(2).
+
+ ENOMEM Insufficient memory was available to handle a page fault result-
+ ing from an MFC direct memory access.
+
+ ENOSYS the functionality is not provided by the current system, because
+ either the hardware does not provide SPUs or the spufs module is
+ not loaded.
