scsi_alloc_target — allocate a new or find an existing target


struct scsi_target * scsi_alloc_target (struct device * parent,
 int channel,
 uint id);


struct device * parent

parent of the target (need not be a scsi host)

int channel

target channel number (zero if no channels)

uint id

target id number


Return an existing target if one exists, provided it hasn't already gone into STARGET_DEL state, otherwise allocate a new target.

The target is returned with an incremented reference, so the caller is responsible for both reaping and doing a last put
