"Streaming" data from kernel to userland

I'm thinking of doing something which would require streaming large
amounts of pretty much real-time data from kernel to a userland
application (for further processing). The first thing that comes to my
mind while thinking of this is sockets, so is there a sockets-like
interface which could be used to transfer large amounts of constantly
generated data from kernel to a userland application? Any advice on its
usage and/or examples?
