Initialize struct device for sound devices

Parameters

struct device * dev
device to initialize
struct snd_card * card
card to assign, optional
int snd_card_new(struct device * parent, int idx, const char * xid, struct module * module, int extra_size, struct snd_card ** card_ret)

create and initialize a soundcard structure

Parameters

struct device * parent
the parent device object
int idx
card index (address) [0 ... (SNDRV_CARDS-1)]
const char * xid
card identification (ASCII string)
struct module * module
top level module for locking
int extra_size
allocate this extra size after the main soundcard structure
struct snd_card ** card_ret
the pointer to store the created card instance

Description

Creates and initializes a soundcard structure.

The function allocates snd_card instance via kzalloc with the given space for the driver to use freely. The allocated struct is stored in the given card_ret pointer.

Return

Zero if successful or a negative error code.

struct snd_card * snd_card_ref(int idx)

Get the card object from the index

Parameters

int idx
the card index

Description

Returns a card object corresponding to the given index or NULL if not found. Release the object via snd_card_unref().

int snd_card_disconnect(struct snd_card * card)

disconnect all APIs from the file-operations (user space)

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure

Description

Disconnects all APIs from the file-operations (user space).

Return

Zero, otherwise a negative error code.

Note

The current implementation replaces all active file->f_op with special
dummy file operations (they do nothing except release).
void snd_card_disconnect_sync(struct snd_card * card)

disconnect card and wait until files get closed

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
card object to disconnect

Description

This calls snd_card_disconnect() for disconnecting all belonging components and waits until all pending files get closed. It assures that all accesses from user-space finished so that the driver can release its resources gracefully.

int snd_card_free_when_closed(struct snd_card * card)

Disconnect the card, free it later eventually

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure

Description

Unlike snd_card_free(), this function doesn't try to release the card resource immediately, but tries to disconnect at first. When the card is still in use, the function returns before freeing the resources. The card resources will be freed when the refcount gets to zero.

int snd_card_free(struct snd_card * card)

frees given soundcard structure

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure

Description

This function releases the soundcard structure and the all assigned devices automatically. That is, you don't have to release the devices by yourself.

This function waits until the all resources are properly released.

Return

Zero. Frees all associated devices and frees the control interface associated to given soundcard.

void snd_card_set_id(struct snd_card * card, const char * nid)

set card identification name

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure
const char * nid
new identification string

Append a new sysfs attribute group to card

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
card instance
const struct attribute_group * group
attribute group to append
int snd_card_register(struct snd_card * card)

register the soundcard

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure

Description

This function registers all the devices assigned to the soundcard. Until calling this, the ALSA control interface is blocked from the external accesses. Thus, you should call this function at the end of the initialization of the card.

Return

Zero otherwise a negative error code if the registration failed.

int snd_component_add(struct snd_card * card, const char * component)

add a component string

Parameters

struct snd_card * card
soundcard structure

slave element to add

Description

Add a virtual slave control to the given master element created via snd_ctl_create_virtual_master() beforehand.

All slaves must be the same type (returning the same information via info callback). The function doesn't check it, so it's your responsibility.

Also, some additional limitations: at most two channels, logarithmic volume control (dB level) thus no linear volume, master can only attenuate the volume without gain

Return

Zero if successful or a negative error code.

Description

Add a virtual slave control to the given master. Unlike snd_ctl_add_slave(), the element added via this function is supposed to have volatile values, and get callback is called at each time queried from the master.

When the control peeks the hardware values directly and the value can be changed by other means than the put callback of the element, this function should be used to keep the value always up-to-date.

Return

Zero if successful or a negative error code.

quality
Sets encoding quality to n, between -1 (low) and 10 (high). In the default mode of operation, the quality level is 3. Normal quality range is 0 - 10.
managed
Boolean. Set bitrate management mode. This turns off the normal VBR encoding, but allows hard or soft bitrate constraints to be enforced by the encoder. This mode can be slower, and may also be lower quality. It is primarily useful for streaming.
max_bit_rate
Enabled only if managed is TRUE
min_bit_rate
Enabled only if managed is TRUE
downmix
Boolean. Downmix input from stereo to mono (has no effect on non-stereo streams). Useful for lower-bitrate encoding.

Description

int id
DAI link ID to match
const char * name
DAI link name to match, optional
const char * stream_name
DAI link stream name to match, optional

Description

Description

This function adds a DAI link to the ASoC card's link list.

Note

Remove a DAI link from the list

Parameters

struct snd_soc_card * card
The ASoC card that owns the link
struct snd_soc_dai_link * dai_link
The DAI link to remove

Description

This function removes a DAI link from the ASoC card's link list.

unsigned int dai_fmt
The new DAI link format

Description

This function updates the DAI link format for all DAIs connected to the DAI link for the specified runtime.

Note

For setups with a static format set the dai_fmt field in the corresponding snd_dai_link struct instead of using this function.

Returns 0 on success, otherwise a negative error code.

int snd_soc_set_dmi_name(struct snd_soc_card * card, const char * flavour)

Register DMI names to card

Parameters

struct snd_soc_card * card
The card to register DMI names
const char * flavour
The flavour "differentiator" for the card amongst its peers.

Description

An Intel machine driver may be used by many different devices but are difficult for userspace to differentiate, since machine drivers ususally use their own name as the card short name and leave the card long name blank. To differentiate such devices and fix bugs due to lack of device-specific configurations, this function allows DMI info to be used as the sound card long name, in the format of "vendor-product-version-board" (Character '-' is used to separate different DMI fields here). This will help the user space to load the device-specific Use Case Manager (UCM) configurations for the card.

Possible card long names may be: DellInc.-XPS139343-01-0310JH ASUSTeKCOMPUTERINC.-T100TA-1.0-T100TA Circuitco-MinnowboardMaxD0PLATFORM-D0-MinnowBoardMAX

This function also supports flavoring the card longname to provide the extra differentiation, like "vendor-product-version-board-flavor".

We only keep number and alphabet characters and a few separator characters in the card long name since UCM in the user space uses the card long names as card configuration directory names and AudoConf cannot support special charactors like SPACE.

Returns 0 on success, otherwise a negative error code.

an identifying string for this jack
int type
a bitmask of enum snd_jack_type values that can be detected by this jack
struct snd_jack ** jjack
Used to provide the allocated jack object to the caller.
bool initial_kctl
if true, create a kcontrol and add it to the jack list.
bool phantom_jack
Don't create a input device for phantom jacks.

Description

void snd_jack_set_parent(struct snd_jack * jack, struct device * parent)

Set the parent device for a jack

Parameters

struct snd_jack * jack
The jack to configure
struct device * parent
The device to set as parent for the jack.

Description

Set the parent for the jack devices in the device tree. This function is only valid prior to registration of the jack. If no parent is configured then the parent device will be the sound card.

int snd_jack_set_key(struct snd_jack * jack, enum snd_jack_types type, int keytype)

Set a key mapping on a jack

Parameters

struct snd_jack * jack
The jack to configure
enum snd_jack_types type
Jack report type for this key
int keytype
Input layer key type to be reported

Description

Map a SND_JACK_BTN_* button type to an input layer key, allowing reporting of keys on accessories via the jack abstraction. If no mapping is provided but keys are enabled in the jack type then BTN_n numeric buttons will be reported.

If jacks are not reporting via the input API this call will have no effect.

Note that this is intended to be use by simple devices with small numbers of keys that can be reported. It is also possible to access the input device directly - devices with complex input capabilities on accessories should consider doing this rather than using this abstraction.

This function may only be called prior to registration of the jack.

Return

Zero if successful, or a negative error code on failure.
