    The kernel only exports information, which you can get from sysfs. This
    will unlikely become a requirement for 2.6, so how this done can still
    change a bit.

    Early-userspace is not that much of a problem, as it only has to map
    the device information from sysfs to a device name. The required
    configuration file can be quite simple, every device has a list of
    properties, which closely resembles sysfs (one property == one value).

    bye, Roman
