if i were reading the above for the first time, i would have no idea
what was being embedded where. "embeds a kobject" where? what's
being embedded in what? that sentence doesn't make it clear. what's
the current definition for a "struct kobject"?

and if it does, whose responsibility is it to provide one? mine?
that's not clear.

i doubt that. i wouldn't say that the ktype "controls" what happens,
i would say that it "defines" what happens. to control suggests
active participation.
