Hmm... what is needed is for the module to output the data it wants to save
during the unload_module stage... and request it during init_module.
kerneld should have runtime placeholders... Of course, if you kill and
restart kerneld it throws away the runtime, but that's not something you
should find yourself doing often.

/proc fails because that means you would have to teach kerneld about
the filenames of EVERY device you want to monitor... so a datablock that
any module can send to kerneld is much preferable.
