Character device interface to existing socket interface!
I am looking for help in writing character device interface
for existing socket interface.
Planning to write as kernel module. Kernel 2.4.20.
It will be a simple pass through to the socket. I mean
it sits above socket and whatever user gives, the
driver passes it to socket and vice versa.
When user creates the device, he gives connected
socket(ESTABLISHED) to device driver.
My hunch is that this looks so common that somebody
would have already written or have some pointer to it.
Somebody may wonder why one needs this ...but for
we can take it as *application specific* requirement.
Please let me know if you know *anything* about it.
