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

NAME
     VOP_CREATE, VOP_MKNOD, VOP_MKDIR, VOP_SYMLINK -- create a file, socket,
     fifo, device, directory or	symlink

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

     int
     VOP_CREATE(struct vnode *dvp, struct vnode	**vpp,
	 struct	componentname *cnp, struct vattr *vap);

     int
     VOP_MKNOD(struct vnode *dvp, struct vnode **vpp,
	 struct	componentname *cnp, struct vattr *vap);

     int
     VOP_MKDIR(struct vnode *dvp, struct vnode **vpp,
	 struct	componentname *cnp, struct vattr *vap);

     int
     VOP_SYMLINK(struct	vnode *dvp, struct vnode **vpp,
	 struct	componentname *cnp, struct vattr *vap, char *target);

DESCRIPTION
     These entry points	create a new file, socket, fifo, device, directory or
     symlink in	a given	directory.

     The arguments are:

     dvp     The locked	vnode of the directory.

     vpp     The address of a variable where the resulting locked vnode	should
	     be	stored.

     cnp     The pathname component created.

     vap     The attributes that the new object	should be created with.

     target  The pathname of the target	of the symlink.

     These entry points	are called after VOP_LOOKUP(9) when an object is being
     created.

LOCKS
     The directory, dvp	will be	locked on entry	and must remain	locked on
     return.  If the call is successful, the new object	will be	returned
     locked.

RETURN VALUES
     If	successful, the	vnode for the new object is placed in *vpp and zero is
     returned.	Otherwise, an appropriate error	is returned.

ERRORS
     [ENOSPC]		The file system	is full.

     [EDQUOT]		The user's file	system space or	inode quota would be
			exceeded.
