    Hmm. now that I think about it, that could work. My very first solution
    was proc-based then I went for ioctls but dropped it for the
    device. Guess I had some brain damage going on there because I was trying
    to send file descriptor of a pipe via ioctl to vesafb. And that was
    obviously a horrible approach but you could simply sleep in the ioctl and
    do all the communication that way.
