LOOKUP_DCOOKIE(2)	   Linux Programmer's Manual	     LOOKUP_DCOOKIE(2)

       lookup_dcookie - return a directory entry's path

       int lookup_dcookie(u64 cookie, char *buffer, size_t len);

       Look  up	 the  full  path of the directory entry specified by the value
       cookie.	The cookie is an opaque identifier uniquely identifying a par‐
       ticular	directory  entry.  The buffer given is filled in with the full
       path of the directory entry.

       For lookup_dcookie() to return successfully, the kernel must still hold
       a cookie reference to the directory entry.

       On  success,  lookup_dcookie()  returns	the  length of the path string
       copied into the buffer.	On error, -1 is returned,  and	errno  is  set

       EFAULT The buffer was not valid.

       EINVAL The  kernel has no registered cookie/directory entry mappings at
	      the time of lookup, or the cookie does  not  refer  to  a	 valid
	      directory entry.

	      The name could not fit in the buffer.

       ENOMEM The  kernel  could  not allocate memory for the temporary buffer
	      holding the path.

       EPERM  The process does not have the capability CAP_SYS_ADMIN  required
	      to look up cookie values.

       ERANGE The  buffer  was not large enough to hold the path of the direc‐
	      tory entry.

       Available since Linux 2.5.43.  The ENAMETOOLONG error return was	 added
       in 2.5.70.

       lookup_dcookie() is Linux-specific.

       lookup_dcookie()	 is a special-purpose system call, currently used only
       by the oprofile profiler.  It relies on a  kernel  driver  to  register
       cookies for directory entries.

       The  path  returned  may	 be suffixed by the string " (deleted)" if the
       directory entry has been removed.

       This page is part of release 3.65 of the Linux  man-pages  project.   A
       description  of	the project, and information about reporting bugs, can
       be found at http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/.
