Subject[PATCH] hwmon: (applesmc) Decode and act on read/write status codes
Date
The behavior of the SMC has changed several times over the years,
causing read failures in the driver. It seems the problem can be
explained by a shift in SMC speed combined with improper action on
status codes.

We should first wait for the SMC to settle, which was the most
frequent response on the old slow machines. Then, if the SMC is busy,
we need to try again later by resending the command. This was the most
likely response until 2012. Now, with a shorter wait time, we are
again most likely to poll while the SMC is settling, and as a result
we see high failure rates on many old and new models.

With the distinction between busy and failure, we can also wait longer
before retrying, without sacrificing speed. This seems to bring
failures down to virtually zero on all models.

Hi Guenter,
It turns out the mid-2012 Macbooks need additional changes in order to
work reliably. Since the needed change is a great improvement also on
other problematic machines, it would make a lot of sense if this patch
could be squeezed into the merge window.

As I mentioned in a previous mail, backporting e70acc100 by itself is
not a good idea, but together with this patch it should be ok.

The patch has been wetted in the forums for a bit.

Thanks,
Henrik
