Subject: Accessing driver from within kernel

Is there any standard way for kernel code to access a device driver?
I have several ideas how one might do this, but none of them
seems to stand out as being the "right way".
I have a standard character mode driver that appears in the file
system (in the "dev" directory) to enable it to be accessed from
user space. I ALSO need to access the same driver from kernel
More specifically, I want a network pseudo driver to be able to
access a driver for a custom ISDN card. I also want the custom
ISDN card to be accessible from use space.
I have had a look at how the line-discipline story works with ttys,
but this is not quite the same thing.
Thanks for any help.
