Ask a kernel developer

configfs addresses the use case of pushing configuration information into a driver at runtime. However, many of the people asking that question have a different use case: how to push configuration information into their driver at boot time, perhaps because their platform doesn't have anything the kernel can automatically probe to get that configuration information. For *that*, the right answer (on non-x86 platforms and some embedded x86 platforms) becomes flattened device trees (fdt).
