What's the preferred way to export board information to userspace ?

Hi everybody,

I need to export some read-only board-specific information (serial number, 
boot mode jumper configuration, ...) to userspace applications.

Could anyone advice me on the preferred way to do that ? I can easily add a 
quick&dirty sysfs/procfs based implementation, but I was wondering if there 
was some kind of clean and generic way.

Best regards,
