    I presume you are talking about the ioctl. I have tried to engage you
    and others on what exactly you prefer instead. I have said that moving
    to a write interface is fine but I don't see how ut is _any_ better than
    the ioctl. Write is less typed, in fact, since we lose the command
    versus argument delineation.

    But if it is a anonymous decision, I'll switch it. Or take patches. ;-)
    It isn't a big deal.
