I give it a quick shot and no problems appear. Nice work.
Here are some random thoughts:
- At least some of the functions will sooner or later move into a more
genric handling inside the linux kernel. Examples are dock (mostly
done), bay (on the way) and brightness (just saw a patch on lkml).
I think your patches are a good solution for now. On long term some
thoughts about fan handling on different machines good be
- As I heard so often, sysfs is the future. Just make clear on your
submit that you are willing to port to sysfs, if neccessary.
- I know I told you before, Borislav will search a new mainainer in
