16Usage of the library functions:
17
18  The main datastructure for a switch is the struct switch_device
19  To get started, you first need to use switch_connect() to probe
20  for switches and allocate an instance of this struct.
21
22  There are two possible usage modes:
23    dev = switch_connect("eth0");
24      - this call will look for a switch registered for the linux device
25          "eth0" and only allocate a switch_device for this particular switch.
26
27    dev = switch_connect(NULL)
28      - this will return one switch_device struct for each available
29          switch. The switch_device structs are chained with by ->next pointer
30
31  Then to query a switch for all available attributes, use:
32    swlib_scan(dev);
33
34  All allocated datastructures for the switch_device struct can be freed with
35    swlib_free(dev);
36  or
37    swlib_free_all(dev);
38
39  The latter traverses a whole chain of switch_device structs and frees them all
40
41  Switch attributes (struct switch_attr) are divided into three groups:
42    dev->ops:
43      - global settings
44    dev->port_ops:
45      - per-port settings
46    dev->vlan_ops:
47      - per-vlan settings
48
49  switch_lookup_attr() is a small helper function to locate attributes
50  by name.
51
52  switch_set_attr() and switch_get_attr() can alter or request the values
53  of attributes.
54
55Usage of the switch_attr struct:
56
57  ->atype: attribute group, one of:
58    - SWLIB_ATTR_GROUP_GLOBAL
59    - SWLIB_ATTR_GROUP_VLAN
60    - SWLIB_ATTR_GROUP_PORT
61
62  ->id: identifier for the attribute
63
64  ->type: data type, one of:
65    - SWITCH_TYPE_INT
66    - SWITCH_TYPE_STRING
67    - SWITCH_TYPE_PORT
68
69  ->name: short name of the attribute
70  ->description: longer description
71  ->next: pointer to the next attribute of the current group
72
73
74Usage of the switch_val struct:
75
76  When setting attributes, following members of the struct switch_val need
77  to be set up:
78
79    ->len (for attr->type == SWITCH_TYPE_PORT)
80    ->port_vlan:
81      - port number (for attr->atype == SWLIB_ATTR_GROUP_PORT), or:
82      - vlan number (for attr->atype == SWLIB_ATTR_GROUP_VLAN)
83    ->value.i (for attr->type == SWITCH_TYPE_INT)
84    ->value.s (for attr->type == SWITCH_TYPE_STRING)
85      - owned by the caller, not stored in the library internally
86    ->value.ports (for attr->type == SWITCH_TYPE_PORT)
87      - must point to an array of at lest val->len * sizeof(struct switch_port)
88
89  When getting string attributes, val->value.s must be freed by the caller
90  When getting port list attributes, an internal static buffer is used,
91  which changes from call to call.
