I'd recommend doing minimal work in the kernel, and move the real work
to userland.. When I wrote my HDTV capture card driver, I made the kernel
just do enough to set bits, and handle the transfer (which requires
writing a RISC program) and it works really well..  We are no longer in
the age where we need the kernel to do everything for us...
