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	hierarchy.  PCI	storage	devices	are listed in the
     scsi_host class with a device symlink 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 symlink to the PCI device directory.

EXAMPLES
     The most common usage follows:

	   mount -t linsysfs linsys /compat/linux/sys

     where /compat/linux/sys is	a mount	point.

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

     The linsysfs driver first appeared	in FreeBSD 6.2.

AUTHORS

     manual page was edited by Doug Ambrisko, based on the linprocfs(5)	manual
     page by Garrett Wollman.
