    Input: add Wistron driver · 5fc14680
    Dmitry Torokhov authored
    A driver for laptop buttons using an x86 BIOS interface that is
    apparently used on quite a few laptops and seems to be originating
    from Wistron.
    This driver currently "knows" only about Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V2000
    (i.e. it can detect the laptop using DMI and it contains the
    keycode->key meaning mapping for this laptop) and Xeron SonicPro X 155G
    (probably can't be reliably autodetected, requires a module parameter),
    adding other laptops should be easy.
    In addition to reporting button presses to the input layer the driver
    also allows enabling/disabling the embedded wireless NIC (using the
    "Wifi" button); this is done using the same BIOS interface, so it seems
    only logical to keep the implementation together.  Any flexibility
    possibly gained by allowing users to remap the function of the "Wifi"
    button is IMHO not worth it when weighted against the necessity to run
    an user-space daemon to convert button presses to wifi state changes.
