.TH io_uring_prep_files_update 3 "March 13, 2022" "liburing-2.2" "liburing Manual"
.SH NAME
io_uring_prep_files_update  - prepare a registered file update request
.fi
.SH SYNOPSIS
.nf
.BR "#include <liburing.h>"
.PP
.BI "void io_uring_prep_files_update(struct io_uring_sqe *" sqe ","
.BI "                                int *" fds ","
.BI "                                unsigned " nr_fds ","
.BI "                                int " offset ");"
.PP
.SH DESCRIPTION
.PP
The io_uring_prep_files_update() function prepares a request for updating
a number of previously registered file descriptors. The
submission queue entry
.I sqe
is setup to use the file descriptor array pointed to by
.I fds
and of
.I nr_fds
in length to update that amount of previously registered files starting at
offset
.I offset.

One a previously registered file is updated with a new one, the existing
entry is updated the removed from the table. This operation is equivalent to
first unregistering that entry and then inserting a new one, just bundled into
one combined operation.

.SH RETURN VALUE
None
.SH ERRORS
These are the errors that are reported in the CQE
.I res
field. On success,
.I res
will contain the number of successfully updated file descriptors. On error,
the following errors can occur.
.TP
.B -ENOMEM
The kernel was unable to allocate memory for the request.
.TP
.B -EINVAL
One of the fields set in the SQE was invalid.
.TP
.B -EFAULT
The kernel was unable to copy in the memory pointed to by
.I fds.
.TP
.B -EBADF
On of the descriptors located in
.I fds
didn't refer to a valid file descriptor, or one of the file descriptors in
the array referred to an io_uring instance.
.TP
.B -EOVERFLOW
The product of
.I offset
and
.I nr_fds
exceed the valid amount or overflowed.
.SH NOTES
As with any request that passes in data in a struct, that data must remain
valid until the request has been successfully submitted. It need not remain
valid until completion. Once a request has been submitted, the in-kernel
state is stable. Very early kernels (5.4 and earlier) required state to be
stable until the completion occurred. Applications can test for this
behavior by inspecting the
.B IORING_FEAT_SUBMIT_STABLE
flag passed back from
.BR io_uring_queue_init_params (3).
