LINSYSFS(5)               FreeBSD File Formats Manual              LINSYSFS(5)

NAME
     linsysfs -- Linux system file system

SYNOPSIS
     linsys          /compat/linux/sys       linsysfs        rw 0 0

DESCRIPTION
     The Linux system file system, or linsysfs, emulates a subset of the Linux
     sys file system and is required for the complete operation of some Linux
     binaries.

     The linsysfs provides a two-level view of devices.  At the highest level,
     PCI devices themselves are named, according to their bus, slot and func-
     tion in the system hierachy.  PCI storage devices are listed in the
     scsi_host class with a device sym-link to the PCI directories of the
     devices.

     Each device node is a directory containing some files and directories:

     host    A place holder for storage host information.

     pci_id  A directory for the pci_id that contains either the device infor-
             mation or another directory structure for a PCI bridge.

     Each host node of scsi_host is a directory containing some files and
     directories:

     proc_name  The Linux registered driver name for these devices.

     device     A sym-link to the PCI device directory.

FILES
     /compat/linux/sys                     The normal mount point for the
                                           linsysfs.
     /compat/linux/sys/class/scsi_host     The storage host node.
     /compat/linux/sys/devices/pci0000:00  The PCI device hierarchy node.
