BUS_ADD_CHILD(9)	 BSD Kernel Developer's	Manual	      BUS_ADD_CHILD(9)

NAME
     BUS_ADD_CHILD -- add a device node	to the tree with a given priority

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/bus.h>

     device_t
     BUS_ADD_CHILD(device_t dev, int order, const char *name, int unit);

DESCRIPTION
     The BUS_ADD_CHILD() method	is used	by the driver identify routine to add
     devices to	the tree.  It can also be used to add children to buses	that
     implement this routine in other contexts, although	the behavior is	bus
     specific.	Please see device_add_child(9) for more	details.  The inter-
     face is the same as device_add_child(9) however, the bus' BUS_ADD_CHILD()
     is	called.

     Buses implementing	BUS_ADD_CHILD()	should insert the device into the tree
     using device_add_child(9) before adding things such as their own ivars
     and resource lists	to the device.	BUS_ADD_CHILD()	is not called by
     device_add_child(9).  BUS_ADD_CHILD() instead calls device_add_child(9).

     A panic will result when called for a bus that does not implement
     BUS_ADD_CHILD().  Some buses require a special bus-specific routine to be
     called instead of BUS_ADD_CHILD().

RETURN VALUES
     The BUS_ADD_CHILD() method	returns	device_t added to the tree, or NULL to
     indicate failure.

SEE ALSO
     device(9),	device_add_child(9), driver(9)
