The following paragraph is extracted from email I sent to rwatson@ because he also asked same question to me. And I added CC to freebsd-usb@ to share my story with other developers who might think similar. Hello Roberts, I understand what you're worry and agree with you that if I could remove this duplication it'd be best one. I think it could be happen enough later if we could reach the consensus. The biggest confusions I encountered during implementing? (porting) it for USB packet filter were as follows. Please let me know if there are something I missed: - BPF was normally for ethernet frames (most operations were based on mbuf including the machine filter and there were a lot of assumptions the input buffer is mbuf type. For example, handling BPF_LD|BPF_W|BPF_ABS). However the USB packet isn't like mbuf style that it's just a linear buffer. So the most important code or assumption wasn't compatible. - Just making the patch for BPF code, it looked like a trick or a hack to me because I couldn't define what BPF should be. - I could not define BPF exactly myself that what BPF should cover. I agreed with that BPF is for ethernet packet filtering but could not make sure myself that BPF could cover USB packets. Please tell me your opinion if you guys have better approach. regards, Weongyo Jeong _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
