How would you get it with C? Based on this, we can know if it is 
possible with plain Python (and not writing a python module written in 
C) Do you do this with a library call? or maybe using FCTL or IOCTL?

I have done IOCTL in python and it is quite easy, but some provisions 
have to be taken respecting the C types the interface expects...
