    C'mon, Linus, tell us how you _really_ feel.

    Seriously, though, please please pretty please do not allow a facility
    for "going through a simple interface to get accesses to irqs and
    memory regions" into the mainline kernel, with or without toy ISA
    examples. Embedded systems integrators have enough trouble with chip
    vendors who think that exposing the device registers to userspace
    constitutes a "driver". The correct description is more like "porting
    shim for MMU-less RTOS tasks"; and if the BSP vendors of the world can
    make a nickel supplying them, more power to them. Just not in
    mainline, please.
