Asynchronous communication between a driver and its clients

Hi All,
I have a driver which uses kill_fasync to asynchronously communicate with it clients.
The problem with this approach is, if there are multiple clients opening the device driver file, those who set themselves as the owner of the device driver file will get notified.
Ideally, we would want to just notify a particular client that should be receiving the notification.
I was wondering if there is a way that I can do that?
Thank you,
- Leo
