Plan 9 does everything through "ctl" files that can be read and written
to with `cat' and `echo', pretty much like Linux sysfs.  The downside is
that all commands have to be parsed and interpreted.

I suppose a more "hurdish" solution would be to use a dedicated RPC
interface (e.g., one with a `set_packet_size ()' RPC) rather than just
use the `io' interface for everything.
