look at existing code for console or serial drivers.

initialize gets called during RTEMS initialization.  it does power-on
initialization (if necessary) and registers a device driver name with

open, close, read, write, and control are called for the registered
device on open(), close(), read(), write(), and ioctl(), respectively.

it seems like this should be in the BSP and Device Driver guide, but I
couldn't find any specifics either.  I'll see if I can't get a patch
generated for the documentation.
