What is the protocol for that device node?

Where is the documentation here? Why does this have to be a character
device? Why can't it fit in with other drivers of this type?

I have to ask, but do you really mean "or any later version"?

Why are these asm files needed?

Why do you have a .h file for a single-file driver? That shouldn't be
needed at all, unless you have an odd user api, and if so, it better be
documented...

Those are huge flags to me, why would you ever have a static pointer to
a device? You should never deal with a "raw" struct device, unless
something is really odd...

It's a driver, use dev_dbg() please.

endless loop? Not good.

Another endless loop? Your hardware must never fail :)

No shared interrupt handling?

A whole major number for one minor? Use the misc class instead please.

And finally, you only have a self-sign-off here, which is fine for
trivial stuff, but I want to see that other people actually believe this
code is correct and they agree with it. Get others to review it first
before making the community (i.e. me) do their work for them. IBM has a
whole bunch of people that do this as part of their job, don't ignore
them...

bah.
