     p2k -- puffs to kernel vfs translation library

     p2k Library (libp2k, -lp2k)

     #include <rump/p2k.h>

     struct p2k_mount *
     p2k_init(uint32_t puffs_flags);

     p2k_cancel(struct p2k_mount *p2m, int error);

     p2k_setup_fs(struct p2k_mount *p2m, const char *vfsname,
         const char *devpath, const char *mountpath, int mntflags, void *arg,
         size_t alen);

     p2k_setup_diskfs(struct p2k_mount *p2m, const char *vfsname,
         const char *devpath, int partition, const char *mountpath,
         int mntflags, void *arg, size_t alen);

     p2k_mainloop(struct p2k_mount *p2m);

     p2k_run_fs(const char *vfsname, const char *devpath,
         const char *mountpath, int mntflags, void *arg, size_t alen,
         uint32_t puffs_flags);

     p2k_run_diskfs(const char *vfsname, const char *devpath, int partition,
         const char *mountpath, int mntflags, void *arg, size_t alen,
         uint32_t puffs_flags);

     The p2k library translates the puffs protocol to the kernel vfs(9) proto-
     col and back again.  It can therefore be used to mount and run kernel
     file system code as a userspace daemon.

     Calling the library interface function mounts the file system and, if
     succesful, starts handling requests.  The parameters are handled by
     ukfs_mount() (see ukfs(3)), with the exception that mountpath and
     puffs_flags are handled by puffs(3).  The "run_fs" variants of the inter-
     faces are provided as a convenience for the common case.  They execute
     all of init, setup and mainloop in one call.

     The following environment variables affect the behaviour of p2k.  They
     are useful mostly for debugging purposes.  The flags are environment
     variables because typically the command line arguments to p2k utilities
     are parsed using versions not aware of p2k options; for example, the
     rump_cd9660(8) arguments are really parsed by mount_cd9660(8).

       P2K_DEBUG          Do not detach from tty and print information about
                          each puffs operation.  In case the daemon receives
                          SIGINFO (typically from ctrl-T), it dumps out the
                          status of the mount point.  Sending SIGUSR1 causes a
                          dump of all the vnodes (verbose).

       P2K_NODETACH       Do not detach from tty.

       P2K_NOCACHE_PAGE   Do not use the puffs page cache.

       P2K_NOCACHE_NAME   Do not use the puffs name cache.

       P2K_NOCACHE        Do not use the puffs page or name cache.

       P2K_WIZARDUID      If set, use the value of the variable to determine
                          the UID of the caller of each operation instead of
                          the actual caller supplied by puffs(3).  This can be
                          used for example to simplify modifying an OS instal-
                          lation's root image as a non-root user.
