25 * Define wrapper structure representing an optional value.
26 *
27 * This macro defines an "is_set" boolean field that must be checked
28 * when accessing the optional field. This "is_set" field provides
29 * the semantics that would be expected of a typical "raw pointer" field
30 * which would be checked for NULL.
31 *
32 * Prefer using this macro where "special" values would be used, e.g.
33 * -1ULL for uint64_t types.

35 * Declaration example:
36 * struct my_struct {
37 * int a;
38 * LTTNG_OPTIONAL(int, b);
39 * };
40 *
41 * Usage example:
42 * struct my_struct foo = LTTNG_OPTIONAL_INIT;
43 *
44 * LTTNG_OPTIONAL_SET(&foo.b, 42);
45 * if (foo.b.is_set) {
46 * printf("%d", foo.b.value);
47 * }
48 *
49 * LTTNG_OPTIONAL_UNSET(&foo.b);
