Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] [RFC] sysfs support for xen linux

My impression is was that sysfs files are mostly meant to be very simple get/set attributes and not have magic properties like the privcmd file - do any other sysfs files even support ioctls().

Yes, true. I think privcmd might be more appropriate for /proc, but would like to see how it works as a binary file under /sys. ioctl's are not supported by sysfs that I can see, so privcmd would have to be a read/write interface.

Regardless of privcmd there are numerous simple attributes related to Xen that are consistent with "zen" of sysfs. :-)
