    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"?

    > Every structure that embeds a kobject needs a corresponding ktype.

    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.
