[PATCH] HP mobile data protection system driver

Hi, all.

I'm new to the list so forgive me in advance for any netiquette mistakes I make.

I wrote a driver for the accelerometer chip on HP nc6400 laptop (I think the same chip is present on
other NCxxxx models). This driver uses ACPI interface present in the bios and behaves pretty much like
hdaps. This is a fully functional version - tested on 2.6.17 and 2.6.18 (not 2.6.19-rc1 since I have a
problem with that kernel on my laptop). It applies on 2.6.19-rc1 as well though. I would like your
remarks and suggestions on this. Also, should I mail this patch to a kernel maintainer? I could not find a maintainer that looks like the address for this patch. The closest one is the lm_sensors maintainer, but
that's probably wrong.

Thanks in advance
Yan Burman
