I'll change my mind and from this patch series I'll resend just 1/3 patch.
Patch 2/3 (followed by 3/3) is maybe not correct because it completely
remove access to
device from user space through /dev interface (used for debugging and testing).

My first idea was just remove it completely because we have a device which just
connect to network and don't need to have some debug interface.

Anyway I'll change creation of device in kernel via kernel threads
which is not from my
point of view correct.
