Why is the kset needed? We can determine that from the kobject.

How about changing this to:
int send_kevent(struct kobject *kobj, struct attribute *attr);
which just tells userspace that a specific attribute needs to be read,
as something "important" has changed.

Will passing the attribute name be able to successfully handle the
"enum kevent" and "signal" combinations?
