I could probably give it a shot, but possibly not until May... once
the current semester ends. I really need to understand the kernel type
system -- or at least the types that "should" be exposed to userspace
-- before thinking about the design too much. Maybe that's the
question that needs to be asked first: in general, what does a sysfs
interface into a driver look like? It's certainly flexible enough to
do a lot, and the existing interfaces allow it to do a lot, but is
there a simplification that covers some large percentage of cases?
