Probably true, but then it's a pain either needing to create device files in /dev, or interface with the devfs/udev du jour. I suppose we already have that issue with /dev/xen/evtchn though, and creating the device node can be hidden in libxc.

we've observed that as well, one performance toolkit uses a /proc file to avoid the mess of "devfs/udev du jour" (what a great description ...).

So maybe it oughtta be a device, who knows, but the sys file will save a lot of trouble.
