SubjectRE: How to use an ACPI declared GPIO in a userspace ...

I already tried adding the "gpio-line-names" property, but the problem
is the same: no driver asks for this GPIO, as shown by the following
kernel messages:

ACPI: Host-directed Dynamic ACPI Table Load:
ACPI: SSDT 0xFFFF994034D42A00 0000E8 (v05 ASEMsp GPIO_BTN 00000001 INTL 20200717)
ACPI: \_SB_.GPO1.BTNS: PRP0001 requires 'compatible' property

So I'll start to write a simple device driver to use this GPIO.
I'll keep you informed!

Thanks Andy and Bartosz for your support!
Best regards,
