library fuchsia.sysmem;
/// Once a channel with this interface is established to a driver (typically in
/// advance), this interface allows asynchronously sending the server end of an
/// Allocator channel which will be served by the driver.
/// For now, the only FIDL interface directly served via normal devhost FIDL
/// dispatching code by the sysmem driver is this interface. Other sysmem
/// interfaces are served by separate dispatching code primarily because we want
/// to be able to establish channels async by sending the server channel toward
/// the driver without needing a round-trip open and without managing the channel
/// as a file descriptor.
/// A secondary current reason tracked by ZX-3091 is that the current devhost
/// dispatching code doesn't permit async processing of requests, which we want
/// for proper functionining of at least the BufferCollection interface since
/// that interface has requests that don't complete until the devhost has
/// constraints from other participants.
// Needs Layout = "Simple" because used with "FIDL Simple C Bindings".
