    I think the key importance is event vs. error. E.g., "overheating" is a
    state, something that can be handled in user-space. A driver piping out
    "error 501" is, well, something different.

    Personally, I am not against using kevent for driver events/errors, but
    the exact scope needs to be decided by the community. You do need a
    kevent, though.
