Detailed Description

Message tag data structure.

Include File
#include <l4/sys/types.h>

Describes the details of an IPC operation, in particular which parts of the UTCB have to be transmitted, and also flags to enable real-time and FPU extensions.

The message tag also contains a user-defined label that could be used to specify a protocol ID. Some negative values are reserved for kernel protocols such as page faults and exceptions.

The type must be treated completely opaque.
