[PATCH] drivers/input/misc: Added Acer TravelMate 240 support to the wistron button interface

This patch adds Acer TravelMate 240 support to the wistron button
interface. This means that the buttons on top of the
keyboard(including ones for Wifi and Bluetooth),  which hitherto did
not work, work now. I have tested it on my laptop and it seems to work
great.

Please check that the ACPI "button.ko" driver can't provide the
functionality; newer laptops apparently work better with that driver
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/12/2/61).

The Acer TravelMate 240 laptop supports ACPI, but the ACPI does not
support hotkeys. Hence hotkeys just would not work without this
module.

fan control (thinkpad t42)

Hello,

I have just purchased an IBM ThinkPad T42.

Most of the noise it makes comes from the CPU fan. This is very quiet
when the computer first turns on, or when it comes out of sleep, but
usually after a few minutes it goes into a different mode. In the new
mode the fan is loud, and worse, it "revs" every few seconds - so
rather than making a constant noise, there is something of a rhythm to
it which I find annoying.

I'm wondering if there is a way to control the fan to keep it from
doing this. I have the processor running at the slowest speed, so it
shouldn't be producing too much heat.

There is nothing in "/proc/acpi/fan/", I'm not sure what to make of
that.

# uname -a
Linux fly 2.6.12-9-686 #1 Mon Oct 10 13:25:32 BST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
# cat /proc/cmdline 
root=/dev/hda1 ro apm=on acpi=on nolapic quiet splash

Thanks,

Frederik

Re: fan control (thinkpad t42)

I run Linux on my T42.  I've got the latest BIOS, firmware, etc
updates using IBMs update tool & when theres no load, the fan is
quiet.  Some of those workarounds on the wiki looked like good ways to
toast your laptop.
