/proc - may be, /sys - not in your life

When you are poking files in /sys directory you are directly playing with kernel internals, there are no clear well-defined API. There are talks about declaring some parts of /sys as some sort of stable API, but certainly not the whole /sys. Otherwise you can say that "my program which used clearly defined API over /dev/kmem is not derived work" even if said program in fact injected huge kernel module this way...
