No, your driver needs to do all of that.

I don't see the need for the user to do this. Better skip it,
there should be a real need for userspace API.

Then please resubmit when all this is done. It is OK to add features
incrementally, but hey, the essential things should be there right from
the beginning. Also, it would be nice if you told me your plans about
incrementally working on it right from the beginning. That would have
saved me a bit of reviewing time, a resource which is too scarce
already.
