Can you expand this description both in Kconfig and the patch
changelog? It's not clear at all what this is good for and what the
actual data is that you send over it.

What tools do you use to talk to them, can you point to a source
repository here? I think that would be useful in order to decide
whether we actually need a low-level interface at all, or if it
should all be accessed using high-level interfaces like the
network driver.
