The initial idea of posting to kernelnewbies was to get a hint on how
the patch would be taken as. I wanted to know if developers will like
the idea behind it or not. I guess, Guenter is not convinced with
any of my reasoning. I am willing to clean it up further only if
I get a positive hint. But it doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

Thanks Guenter, Alan, and Greg for taking your time and reviewing it.

Greg: To answer your last question, if this was taken positively, I
was thinking of having functionality similar to misc device registration.
