ioctl_list - list of ioctl calls in Linux/i386 kernel


This is Ioctl List 1.3.27, a list of ioctl calls in Linux/i386 kernel 1.3.27. It contains 421 ioctls from /usr/include/{asm,linux}/*.h. For each ioctl, its numerical value, its name, and its argument type are given.

An argument type of 'const struct foo *' means the argument is input to the kernel. 'struct foo *' means the kernel outputs the argument. If the kernel uses the argument for both input and output, this is marked with // I-O.

Some ioctls take more arguments or return more values than a single structure. These are marked // MORE and documented further in a separate section.

This list is very incomplete. Please e-mail changes and comments to <>.

ioctl structure

Ioctl command values are 32-bit constants. In principle these constants are completely arbitrary, but people have tried to build some structure into them.

The old Linux situation was that of mostly 16-bit constants, where the last byte is a serial number, and the preceding byte(s) give a type indicating the driver. Sometimes the major number was used: 0x03 for the HDIO_* ioctls, 0x06 for the LP* ioctls. And sometimes one or more ASCII letters were used. For example, TCGETS has value 0x00005401, with 0x54 = 'T' indicating the terminal driver, and CYGETTIMEOUT has value 0x00435906, with 0x43 0x59 = 'C' 'Y' indicating the cyclades driver.

Later (0.98p5) some more information was built into the number. One has 2 direction bits (00: none, 01: write, 10: read, 11: read/write) followed by 14 size bits (giving the size of the argument), followed by an 8-bit type (collecting the ioctls in groups for a common purpose or a common driver), and an 8-bit serial number.

The macros describing this structure live in <asm/ioctl.h> and are _IO(type,nr) and {_IOR,_IOW,_IOWR}(type,nr,size). They use sizeof(size) so that size is a misnomer here: this third parameter is a data type.

Note that the size bits are very unreliable: in lots of cases they are wrong, either because of buggy macros using sizeof(sizeof(struct)), or because of legacy values.

Thus, it seems that the new structure only gave disadvantages: it does not help in checking, but it causes varying values for the various architectures.


Decent ioctls return 0 on success and -1 on error, while any output value is stored via the argument. However, quite a few ioctls in fact return an output value. This is not yet indicated below.

Some ioctl's take a pointer to a structure which contains additional pointers. These are documented here in alphabetical order.

CDROMREADAUDIO takes an input pointer 'const struct cdrom_read_audio *'. The 'buf' field points to an output buffer of length 'nframes * CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW'.

CDROMREADCOOKED, CDROMREADMODE1, CDROMREADMODE2, and CDROMREADRAW take an input pointer 'const struct cdrom_msf *'. They use the same pointer as an output pointer to 'char []'. The length varies by request. For CDROMREADMODE1, most drivers use 'CD_FRAMESIZE', but the Optics Storage driver uses 'OPT_BLOCKSIZE' instead (both have the numerical value 2048).

             CDROMREADCOOKED             char [CD_FRAMESIZE]
             CDROMREADMODE1              char [CD_FRAMESIZE or OPT_BLOCKSIZE]
             CDROMREADMODE2              char [CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW0]
             CDROMREADRAW                char [CD_FRAMESIZE_RAW]
EQL_ENSLAVE, EQL_EMANCIPATE, EQL_GETSLAVECFG, EQL_SETSLAVECFG, EQL_GETMASTERCFG, and EQL_SETMASTERCFG take a 'struct ifreq *'. The 'ifr_data' field is a pointer to another structure as follows:
             EQL_ENSLAVE                 const struct slaving_request *
             EQL_EMANCIPATE              const struct slaving_request *
             EQL_GETSLAVECFG             struct slave_config *           // I-O
             EQL_SETSLAVECFG             const struct slave_config *
             EQL_GETMASTERCFG            struct master_config *
             EQL_SETMASTERCFG            const struct master_config *
FDRAWCMD takes a 'struct floppy raw_cmd *'. If 'flags & FD_RAW_WRITE' is non-zero, then 'data' points to an input buffer of length 'length'. If 'flags & FD_RAW_READ' is non-zero, then 'data' points to an output buffer of length 'length'.

GIO_FONTX and PIO_FONTX take a 'struct console_font_desc *' or a 'const struct console_font_desc *', respectively. 'chardata' points to a buffer of 'char [charcount]'. This is an output buffer for GIO_FONTX and an input buffer for PIO_FONTX.

GIO_UNIMAP and PIO_UNIMAP take a 'struct unimapdesc *' or a 'const struct unimapdesc *', respectively. 'entries' points to a buffer of 'struct unipair [entry_ct]'. This is an output buffer for GIO_UNIMAP and an input buffer for PIO_UNIMAP.

KDADDIO, KDDELIO, KDDISABIO, and KDENABIO enable or disable access to I/O ports. They are essentially alternate interfaces to 'ioperm'.

KDMAPDISP and KDUNMAPDISP enable or disable memory mappings or I/O port access. They are not implemented in the kernel.

SCSI_IOCTL_PROBE_HOST takes an input pointer 'const int *', which is a length. It uses the same pointer as an output pointer to a 'char []' buffer of this length.

SIOCADDRT and SIOCDELRT take an input pointer whose type depends on the protocol:

             Most protocols              const struct rtentry *
             AX.25                       const struct ax25_route *
             NET/ROM                     const struct nr_route_struct *
SIOCGIFCONF takes a 'struct ifconf *'. The 'ifc_buf' field points to a buffer of length 'ifc_len' bytes, into which the kernel writes a list of type 'struct ifreq []'.

SIOCSIFHWADDR takes an input pointer whose type depends on the protocol:

             Most protocols              const struct ifreq *
             AX.25                       const char [AX25_ADDR_LEN]
TIOCLINUX takes a 'const char *'. It uses this to distinguish several independent sub-cases. In the table below, 'N + foo' means 'foo' after an N-byte pad. 'struct selection' is implicitly defined in 'drivers/char/selection.c'
             TIOCLINUX-2                 1 + const struct selection *
             TIOCLINUX-3                 void
             TIOCLINUX-4                 void
             TIOCLINUX-5                 4 + const struct { long [8]; } *
             TIOCLINUX-6                 char *
             TIOCLINUX-7                 char *
             TIOCLINUX-10                1 + const char *
// Duplicate ioctls

This list does not include ioctls in the range SIOCDEVPRIVATE and SIOCPROTOPRIVATE.
