SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] toshiba-acpi: Support TOS1900-type devices
From
Hi there,

Indeed, my Satellite X205-9800 uses that method, however, it only provides
HCI call 0x001E (Hotkey Events) and no System Event FIFO (0x0016),
instead, hotkeys are entered on a variable called TOHK (TOshiba HotKeys?).
Located in my model in

PCI0.LPCB.EC0.TOHK

and it appears that it can be _polled_ tru' method INFO
(TOSH_INTERFACE_2 ".INFO"),
perhaps a small change in the polling to reflect to that method for
TOS1900 devices would be necessary.


On my model the complete call would be:

\\_SB.VALZ.SPFC
\\_SB.VALZ.INFO

Is it different from \\_SB_.VALZ.SPFC or it simply doesn't matter?

Saludos
Azael
