This is a list of things that need to be done to get this driver out of the
staging directory.
- Implement the gasket framework's functionality through UIO instead of
introducing a new user-space drivers framework that is quite similar.
UIO provides the necessary bits to implement user-space drivers. Meanwhile
the gasket APIs adds some extra conveniences like PCI BAR mapping, and
MSI interrupts. Add these features to the UIO subsystem, then re-implement
the Apex driver as a basic UIO driver instead (include/linux/uio_driver.h)
- Document sysfs files with Documentation/ABI/ entries.
- Use misc interface instead of major number for driver version description.
- Add descriptions of module_param's
- apex_get_status() should actually check status.
- "drivers" should never be dealing with "raw" sysfs calls or mess around with
kobjects at all. The driver core should handle all of this for you
automaically. There should not be a need for raw attribute macros.
