Signalling from kernel

Hi all,

is there a simple way to call an user-level funktion from kernel space
or at least let the process notify that a driver completed a task.

I think
the IPC message approach, kerneld uses will be a good solution,
but it seems that it is not possible to register a message interface
with the kernel dynamically.

I ask because I'm trying to implement a simple signal-like behaviour for
drivers developed with the (Linux Driver Development Kit An I'm looking
for a fast and simple solution.

Any idea ?
