Following the disk analogy, this more like your disk only exposing a filesystem interface.

And then the manufacture claiming it's the most open device ever.

Want to improve performance? Fix bugs? Use a FS more suited to your needs?

Better start begging Broadcom.

But it gets better, the Alan Cox is endorsing this model. Maybe all linux drivers should just be RPC shims in front of closed firmware blobs. Yay freedom.
