Drivers without device files

They don't have any corresponding /dev entry you could read or write through a regular Unix command.

► Network drivers

They are represented by a network device such as ppp0, eth1, usbnet, irda0 (listed by ifconfig -a)

► Other drivers

Often intermediate or lowlevel drivers just interfacing with other ones. Example: usbcore.
