"In the previous installments of this article, I showed how to export a /proc interface from kernel space, and then how to get information to the kernel by writing to a /proc entry."

"This time, I'll give an example of something which could be exported."

"Some of the code in this article has changed somewhat to the previous articles, but the functionality remains the same. I had mail after part 1 of this article from Jeff Garzik who pointed out some interesting ideas. I'll be expanding his points (and those from some other people who gave feedback) in a future part of this article which will detail overhauling an existing driver.
