Borislav Deianov ( has recently posted a
similar Thinkpad ACPI driver on the Thinkpad hardware list, and it has a
number of success reports.

He has apparently taken off on holiday, but you can find the code here:

Perhaps you should talk to him about merging the code, and then working
together to get this into the kernel?

I believe that he has also been in touch with the ACPI development list.

Anyway, it is good to see Thinkpad specific ACPI support on the way --
being able to software control my Bluetooth adapter would be nice. :)
