    SubjectRe: [patch-2.3.46-p2] P6 microcode update support

    Ok, the final patch I've seen looks ok,

    ... BUT ...

    I think we shoul dstart getting rid of /dev files for random new devices.

    I'd MUCH rather just see a /proc/sys/xxx file, which has the advantage of
    (a) needing no user-level setup (b) not having major/minor number issues
    and (c) making it trivial to see if the kernel has the microcode update
    support or not.

    Special character devices are a weakness of UNIX, not a strength. We have
    enough of them already. If they are virtual devices, then give them a
    virtual interface..
