sending messages from the kernel to user apps

Which is the easiest way to send a message from the
kernel to a user application?

I was thinking of having the user-app listen to a specific
socket port (AF_UNIX). Is this a good idea?
If so at which routines should I look to see how this works?
If not, is ther a better approach?

I would really appreciate some help :-) Please e-mail.

Thanks a lot,
