Well, that's exactly what I wrote some years ago. There's on one hand the v4l2 
framework and on the other hand there's a driver (in my case, it's a bktr 
one) which registers itself at the v4l2 framework. Then, the latter creates 
the device nodes and the applications use these nodes to get in contact with 
the driver. Julian, I think that's what you are looking for, isn't it?
