Detailed Description

lib/buf: An efficient byte queue.

This module defines the buf_t type, which is used throughout our networking code. The implementation is a singly-linked queue of buffer chunks, similar to the BSD kernel's "mbuf" structure.

The buf_t type is also reasonable for use in constructing long strings.

See lib/net for networking code that uses buf_t, and lib/tls for cryptographic code that uses buf_t.
