NAME         top

       io_uring_wait_cqes - wait for one or more io_uring completion

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <liburing.h>

       int io_uring_wait_cqes(struct io_uring *ring,
                              struct io_uring_cqe **cqe_ptr,
                              unsigned wait_nr,
                              struct __kernel_timespec *ts,
                              sigset_t *sigmask);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The io_uring_wait_cqes(3) function returns wait_nr IO completions
       from the queue belonging to the ring param, waiting for them if
       necessary or until the timeout ts expires. The sigmask specifies
       the set of signals to block. The prevailing signal mask is
       restored before returning.

       The cqe_ptr param is filled in on success with the first CQE.
       Callers of this function should use io_uring_for_each_cqe(3) to
       iterate all available CQEs.

       If ts is specified and an older kernel without
       IORING_FEAT_EXT_ARG is used, the application does not need to
       call io_uring_submit(3) before calling io_uring_wait_cqes(3).
       For newer kernels with that feature flag set, there is no implied
       submit when waiting for a request.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success io_uring_wait_cqes(3) returns 0 and the cqe_ptr param
       is filled in. On failure it returns -errno.
