I've written a netfilter match for port knocking.  I
need a way of modifying rules from a kernel module. 
Currently, what I have is a server that reads from
/proc/net/portknock to see which knocks are open and
which knocks are closed.

Is changing [a] rule(s) from a kernel module currently

If so, is there any reason not do to it this way?

it's not a port knocking question, but you may visit to view information about this
