Subject[RFC] /sys/class/mem support
Hi,

Here's a patch against the latest 2.6.0-test3-bk tree that adds
/sys/class/mem support for the "memory" char devices. I know that
Robert Love was thinking of moving some of the /proc/sys/kernel/random/
files into sysfs, so this patch is needed for him to do this (Robert,
you will need to export some variables for this to work, this patch is
just a start...)

This patch is needed for a complete persistant device naming scheme
(such as udev.)

Anyway, with this patch, /sys/class/mem looks like the following:

$ tree /sys/class/mem/
/sys/class/mem/
|-- full
| `-- dev
|-- kmem
| `-- dev
|-- kmsg
| `-- dev
|-- mem
| `-- dev
|-- null
| `-- dev
|-- port
| `-- dev
|-- random
| `-- dev
|-- urandom
| `-- dev
`-- zero
`-- dev

$ cat /sys/class/mem/*/dev
1:7
1:2
1:11
1:1
1:3
1:4
1:8
1:9
1:5


Memory devices are never unregistered from the kernel, so that is why
this patch does not have any support for this.

Comments?

thanks,

greg k-h
