Trance Vibrator

This patch against is a driver for the [ PlayStation 2 specific Trance Vibrator] device. The only thing that device can do is vibrate at various speeds. Strange device, but also educational because of the strange way sysfs is used...


The patch replaces an error message by something a bit more, umm, expressive. Yeah, expressive. However, the author forgot some coding style and patch submission details, which [ Andrew Morton helpfully points out].
