Instruction set reference

HIPE_OP_FIFO_DROP_PEER

In a client-host relationship, this instruction is used when a client wishes to tell a host that access to the FIFO resource will no longer be required (for example, the user has closed a certain document that was being accessed through the resource).

In the normal use case, the client would send this instruction to location 0 (to be picked up by the parent frame), and the parent frame on receiving the instruction should pass it on to the corresponding host frame.

Notes

After receiving this message, the FIFO-host should discard and clean up the shared FIFO resource.

FIFO functionality in Hipe is under development and this instruction and documentation may be subject to change as we figure out the best approach.
