    The "device node"? You mean stuff in /proc, right?

    No. You explained why not:

    The existing per-arch code looks like it would work.
    At worst, an offset (probably already a #define somewhere)
    might need to be added.

    Pushing a MAP_MMIO through to the per-arch code
    might be slightly more involved. I can do PowerPC
    and x86 at least, if it comes to that.
