Hello,
for project i am working on i need use DMA transfers, work with L1 SHARC etc - these things can be done only from kernel space. But I also need communicate with SHARC some way (using MCAPI). As I understand Linux ICC driver provides API for user space only (via char device). Is there any possibility to use MCAPI (or just ICC) from kernel module? Or do i have to modify ICC driver (or use something dirty like ioctl between MCAPI userspace application and my kernel module)?
