    The equivalent of the libc in the ggi proposal is the libggi. Kgi is
    only the minimal set a features necessary for a given card to ensure
    first stability then speed. Ggi is the user-level interface, provided
    by libggi, a mix-up of kernel accesses to kgi, direct card accesses
    and emulation where necessary. The actual user/kernel interface is
    defined on a case-by-case basis.
