mount ($class, $data, $dev_no)

Request to mount $data as pseudo-device number $dev_no. Must return object instance that will receive all further operation requests (see below).

Stat $path

Return array of 12-items, in the same format as perl's CORE::stat (see perldoc -f stat) on success, and error number integer on failure.

Open $path, $mode

Tries to open $path with $mode. On success must return a glob handle, f.ex. an IO::Scalar object emulating the file. On failure must return error number integer.

Close $handle

Optional; implements close(2) semantics - on successful operation must return 0, error number integer otherwise.
