shell in 32 char LCD

I have a 2 line 32 char LCD panel from
dick smith and am looking to use it as a monitor.
The guys at
have done this for their 1U servers
but it's a bit thin on details.

I can write code to talk to the panel.
It is 8 bit parallel with another couple
of bits for ctrl. So will attach to parallel
port for now.

But what would be nice is to slip my driver
code into the right place (in kernel?) so
that the shell (etc.) can use LCD.

Anybody tried this?
