Let me just warn you that it is not trivial to fix this in any way that
I would accept into the Host AP driver.. I do not want to see any state
kept between proc read operations and I don't think converting that proc
file to binary is acceptable even though it would be easier to seek in
it. In other words, just please make sure you read it in one read
operation to large enough buffer in user space.
