    Linux has a LED subsystem for that. May I suggest, that you just register
    these leds and let userspace handle them via that via the LED API?

    The LED userspace API is described in Documentation/leds-class.txt
    and the headers for registering LEDs is linux/leds.h under include/

    Since you explicitly WANT user space to control these, that should
    be the right API.

    Richard, what do YOU think?

    Best Regards
