- <title>Description</title>
- <para>To query the attributes of an entity, applications set the id field
- of a &media-entity-desc; structure and call the MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES
- ioctl with a pointer to this structure. The driver fills the rest of the
- structure or returns an &EINVAL; when the id is invalid.</para>
- <para>Entities can be enumerated by or'ing the id with the
- <constant>MEDIA_ENT_ID_FLAG_NEXT</constant> flag. The driver will return
- information about the entity with the smallest id strictly larger than the
- requested one ('next entity'), or the &EINVAL; if there is none.</para>
- <para>Entity IDs can be non-contiguous. Applications must
- <emphasis>not</emphasis> try to enumerate entities by calling
- MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES with increasing id's until they get an error.</para>
- <para>Two or more entities that share a common non-zero
- <structfield>group_id</structfield> value are considered as logically
- grouped. Groups are used to report
