I have a (maybe stupid) question, based on rtems-

Now I am surprised that I cannot find a proper declaration for this
function. I would expect it to be located in sys/ioctl.h, but it is not

Any hints for me (including "buy new glasses")?

controlled using an ioctl call. What is the prefered location to publish
the ioctl command definitions? I would define a new
"rtems/msdos_ioctl.h", is this ok?
