Why can't this /dev/registry stuff be just an ioctl()? Open the
/dev/registry node for the appropriate access, then use some ioctl()'s to
read and write it. Put the /dev/null entry points for the read and write
handlers for /dev/registry and you won't have that accidental corruption
By the way, if you're using Cygwin, why can't you just call RegQueryValueExW
and friends yourself? You're a Win32 process anyway, and no UNIX has such a
thing - don't care about portability.
