[PATCH 1/3] Add _ckpt_read_hdr_type() helper

Dan Smith danms at us.ibm.com
Wed Jul 1 11:20:12 PDT 2009


This helper function gives us a way to read a header object and the
subsequent payload from the checkpoint stream directly into our own
buffer.  This is used by the net/checkpoint.c code to read skb's
without a memcpy().
