I like this idea of a virtual fs, say, available for doing operations like

 read_outdata < \

which would nicely move all of pioctl traffic into the upcall interface
(would MAXPATHLEN size be enough for pioctl data?).

This would be compatible both with the existing kernel modules and
with FUSE capabilities.
