SubjectRe: proc_register_dynamic() problem & questions
Date

Hi.

No. You should use "proc_register_dynamic()" + "fill_inode()", and
create your inode_operations and file_operations.

Sure. Using get_info is just a way to easily create short read-only files.
In the /proc filesystem you can still do everything you like, but with
the full-featured vfs interface.

hope this helps. Feel free to bug me personally for firther info.
