here is one issue that stopped me today:
sometimes l3 message headers includes protocol header: see struct
and sometimes it is just the information element part: see struct
since i work with layer 3 messages, i need a uniform way to define these
headers. i will add new headers for messages i implement to gsm_04_08.h.
therefore i need a decision. i prefer that the headers (like
gsm48_imm_ass or gsm48_loc_upd_req) consists of the information elements
parts only. i must put gsm48_hdr in front of it whenever i create a l3
message. when parsing that message, i must skip the information element
part in the decoding function. when creating the message, i always add
the l3 header (with it's content) and the information elements.
creation would look like this
struct msgb *msg = gsm48_msgb_alloc();
struct gsm48_hdr *gh = (struct gsm48_hdr *) msgb_put(msg,
struct gsm48_imm_ass *ia = (struct gsm48_imm_ass *)
gh->protocol = ....
gh->msg_type = ....
parsing would look like this:
struct gsm48_hdr *gh = msgb_l3(msg);
struct gsm48_imm_ass *ia = gh->data;
unsigned int payload_len = msgb_l3len(msg) - sizeof(*gh) -
tlv_parse(&tp, &rsl_att_tlvdef, ia->data, payload_len, 0, 0);
note: payload_len is where the TLV part of the information elements
-------------- next part --------------
