Heh, no, that's not ok at all.

This is a _huge_ sign that you are doing something wrong in your driver
if you need something that isn't exported, or that you have to dig out

Sorry, I can't take this, please fix the underlying problems that would
even think that you need access to the environment from within a kernel
driver.
