SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <liburing.h>

       void *io_uring_cqe_get_data(struct io_uring_cqe *cqe);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The io_uring_cqe_get_data(3) function returns the user_data with
       the completion queue entry cqe as a data pointer.

       The io_uring_cqe_get_data64(3) function returns the user_data
       with the completion queue entry cqe as a 64-bit data value.

       After the caller has received a completion queue entry (CQE) with
       io_uring_wait_cqe(3), the application can call
       io_uring_cqe_get_data(3) or io_uring_cqe_get_data64(3) function
       to retrieve the user_data value. This requires that user_data has
       been set earlier with the function io_uring_sqe_set_data(3) or
