So I actually wouldn't have complained about it in drivers/misc/ssbi/
or something like that. I don't think that's necessarily the best
place for it, and maybe somebody can come up with better places. But
even just in drivers/misc, at least you've moved it away to the point
that it doesn't potentially compete with the pathname auto-completion
of the fifty million other drivers we have under drivers/.

Or maybe "drivers/platform/something-or-other" if there are possible
other things that get shared together with this thing? I don't care
that deeply, as long as it's just off in a little corner of the
universe, rather than smack-dab in the middle.
