GETNEWVNODE(9)           BSD Kernel Developer's Manual          GETNEWVNODE(9)

NAME
     getnewvnode -- get a new vnode

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/param.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;sys/vnode.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;sys/mount.h>&gt;

     int
     getnewvnode(enum vtagtype tag, struct mount *mp, struct vops *vops,
         struct vnode **vpp);

DESCRIPTION
     The getnewvnode() function initializes a new vnode, assigning it the
     vnode operations passed in vops.  It will have its v_tag field set to tag
     and be placed in the mount queue for the mount point represented by mp.

     The vnode is either freshly allocated, taken from the free list or taken
     from the hold list.  If there are no vnodes on the free list, half the
     time a vnode referencing buffers will be taken from the hold list, other-
     wise it will be freshly allocated.

     The arguments to getnewvnode() are:

     tag   The file system type.

     mp    The mount point to add the new vnode to.

     vops  The vnode operations to assign to the new vnode.

     vpp   Points to the new vnode upon successful completion.

RETURN VALUES
     getnewvnode() returns 0 on success, or ENFILE if the vnode table is full.
