linux-sys - raw auto generated FFI bindings to Linux UAPI headers
linux-sys provides the correct headers to access linux user-api directly.
All the types in this crate are autogenerated at compile time and will have different types per platform. The fact that you see
type Foo = u8 doesn't mean you can just use
u8, you have to use
Foo as on some platforms it might be
Please open issues if there's any typedef/struct missing that you'd like (currently contains only the major headers for technical reasons https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Synchronizing_Headers)
Note this aren't necessarily libc compatible, and if you need to work with lib please see the libc crate.
The versions in this crate match the Linux Kernel version that was used to generate the headers.
Add this to your

cty- By default
std::os::rawis used to get C fundamental types(e.g.
ctyfeature replaces libstd with cty crate
Minimum Supported Rust Version (MSRV)
Currently it officially supports only rust nightly, because most interaction with the kernel requires assembly anyway.
In practice both
stable are tested in the CI.
but I do plan to add an autodetect feature to bindgen] such that it will work with whatever version bindgen] can generate for.
