I'm all in favour of the use of brains rather than the cult of ioctl
hating. You can design bad ioctls and good ones. Also ioctl is pretty
much unique in being bidirectional, it allows a query/respose action
without having to worry about whether the respose is the one to your
query or another parallel query.
