The seq_file interface in the kernel allows easy creation of virtual files by implementing an interface that iterates over values which can be printed. It seemed like this should directly translate into the Rust trait of an Iterator where Item implements Display, but of course the devil is in the details. I'll show what I did to provide an interface to seq_file for Rust code.
