RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, udev_device_get_syspath(), udev_device_get_sysname(),
       udev_device_get_sysnum(), udev_device_get_devpath(),
       udev_device_get_devnode(), udev_device_get_devtype(),
       udev_device_get_subsystem(), udev_device_get_driver() and
       udev_device_get_action() return a pointer to a constant string that
       describes the requested property. The lifetime of this string is
       bound to the device it was requested on. On failure, each function
       may return NULL.

       On success, udev_device_get_devnum() returns the device type of the
       passed device. On failure, a device type with minor and major number
       set to 0 is returned.

       udev_device_get_udev() always returns a valid pointer to the udev
       context that this device belongs to.

       On success, udev_device_get_parent() and
       udev_device_get_parent_with_subsystem_devtype() return a pointer to
       the parent device. No additional reference to this device is
       acquired, but the child device owns a reference to such a parent
       device. On failure, NULL is returned.

       On success, udev_device_get_is_initialized() returns either 1 or 0,
       depending on whether the passed device has already been initialized
       by udev or not. On failure, a negative error code is returned. Note
       that devices for which no udev rules are defined are never reported
