A story of 16 byte character LCD driver on linux

Yesterday night, I was looking at my linux box, and thought, let me revamp my old kernel driver skills.. thought I'd write a small character LCD driver.. checked the datasheet, gathered that it was childish. Till i started looking at userspace functionality... Thats when I groaned..
LCDProc: http://lcdproc.omnipotent.net/
LCD Module: http://lcd.sourceforge.net/
LCD mod: http://lcd-mod.sourceforge.net/
in the end.. hmm.. I kind of have decided on lcd proc.. dunno how difficult it is.. the worst part is that.. there are no standard interfaces in the kernel itself..
Will update this post as I develop on this..
