I intend to write (when my radio card arrives in a couple of days) a driver for /dev/radio.

I have already obtained reasonable information for this, which is all fair enough, but I have not yet seen anything along the lines of "/dev/* device creating for the inept...". Should I create a document explaining this? (/dev/radio, as I envisage it, would be a mostly ioctl based thing, depending upon hardware support....)

Thanks, and keep up the hacking, Matthew.
