Question re oracleasm

Greetings,

I have installed asmlib on some of our Linux RHEL3 RAC clusters running
10gR1. I see a /dev/oracleasm in which there is one or more empty plain
files:
$ cd /dev/oracleasm
$ ls -lR
.:
total 0
drwxr-xr-x    1 root     root            0 Mar  1 12:26 disks
drwxrwx---    1 oracle   dba             0 Mar  1 12:26 iid

./disks:
total 0

./iid:
total 0
-rwx------    1 oracle   dba             0 Mar  1 12:28 0000000000000001
-rwx------    1 oracle   dba             0 Mar  1 12:29 0000000000000002
-rwx------    1 oracle   dba             0 Mar  5 14:15 0000000000000003
$ 

I have no idea what these files are for or what created them. Does
anyone know what they are for?

Thanks.
