eventfd for kernel event dispatch
 
Hi folks:

I'm trying to understand how eventfd can be used for event dispatching from kernel space to user space. I'm hoping this is a way for asynchronous event notification between kernel space to user space.

Could anyone provide example code from both the kernel and user space regarding setting up and using eventfd for asychronous kernel to user event notification?

Thanks!
