I'm working on a user-space app to provide the same info. It's nearly there but lacking some timing info.

Do you have any suggestions for how I can compute the value of via_clock in userspace? (i.e. some equivalent of system_bus_clock())

A sysfs read-only attribute, associated with the PCI device?

Of course, procfs sure seems a whole lot easier some days...
