I'm working on a driver that would verify a Linux or U-Boot image is
secure and I need to pass parameters such as the public key, starting
address, etc. I'd heard in talking to developers that IOCTLs are frowned
upon. I also found this article that seems to indicate that using sysfs
or proc is a better way to go.
but then I see this article from 2013 which is more recent than the article.
So are IOCTLs discouraged or not?
