As Alan pointed out, we can't just add random ioctls for individual
drivers for this type of thing. We need to standardize on this.

Actually, why can't you use the GPIO subsystem for something like this?
Can't you export your device as both a usb-serial device and a gpio
device and have things work properly that way?

thanks,
