I am writing a module whose main purpose is to allow a user app to change the values of some variables in the kernel's memory area. Using the modules in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/ as a starting point, I have been able to create the module. I can insmod and rmmod it successfully (configreed via printk's to syslog). I am now looking for a way for the user level application to be able to access the module. I searched high and low for info on how to do this with no success. Any pointers in the right direction are most welcome.
