Subject[RFC][PATCH 4 of 4] Configfs is really sysfs
Date
A kernel code example that uses the modified configfs to define a simple
configuration interface. Note the use of kobjects and ksets instead of
config_items and config_groups.

Also notice how much code is required to get a simple value from
userspace to kernel space. This is a big problem that needs to be
addressed soon, before we end up with tens or hundreds of thousands of
lines of code code bloat just to get and set variables from user space.

Regards,

Daniel
