You said "other than performance". Those are the magic words that govern the operation of most device drivers.

Within reason, no-one cares if your Perl program takes a couple of extra seconds to generate that report/parse that text document, but if your device driver is making the rest of the system slow and unusable, noone is gonna be happy

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.
