Hello Miguel & et-al,

how about the /proc/net directory ? I haven't seen
mentioned the lack of device-driver informantion in this
directory .

If you take a peek at the configuration manager and what it does, such
a scheme can be effortlessly implemented with it, similar to how you
describe it should look/work. I suggest people investigate the
kernel configuration manager for doing these sorts of things for
driver information under /proc
