Expand description

Produces a pointer to an object from a pointer to one of its fields.


Callers must ensure that the pointer to the field is in fact a pointer to the specified field, as opposed to a pointer to another object of the same type. If this condition is not met, any dereference of the resulting pointer is UB.


struct Test {
    a: u64,
    b: u32,

let test = Test { a: 10, b: 20 };
let b_ptr = &test.b;
let test_alias = container_of!(b_ptr, Test, b);
assert!(core::ptr::eq(&test, test_alias));
