VFS_VGET(9)	       FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual	   VFS_VGET(9)

NAME
     VFS_VGET -- convert an inode number to a vnode

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/mount.h>
     #include <sys/vnode.h>

     int
     VFS_VGET(struct mount *mp,	ino_t ino, int flags, struct vnode **vpp);

DESCRIPTION
     The VFS_VGET() looks up or	creates	a vnode	from a (mount, inode#) tupple.

     Its arguments are:

     mp	    The	mount point.

     ino    The	inode representing the file.  This is a	unique number assigned
	    by the file	system when vnodes are first created.

     flags  Additional locking flags to	pass through to	vget(9).

     vpp    Return parameter for the vnode.

     This is an	optional file system entry-point for file systems mainly
     intended for NFS server use, but many file	systems	use it internally in
     VOP_LOOKUP(9) and similar.

     If	the file system	does not support this call, then it should return
     EOPNOTSUPP.

     Please see	ffs_vget() in sys/ufs/ffs/ffs_vfsops.c for the canonical exam-
     ple.
