Adding support functions to the console client itself sounds like a good
idea:  the console client would provide a simple API (maybe even simpler
than that of libtrivfs) that could be used by its drivers that need to
communicate to the outside world via the filesystem.  Typically drivers
would just need to define a `read' and a `write' function and pass
pointers to them as well as a preferred node name to `console-client'.
