thinkpad-acpi - ThinkPad Hotkey Driver

This was a Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops written by Erik Rigtorp. It aimed to support various features of these laptops which are accessible through the ACPI framework but not otherwise supported by the generic Linux ACPI drivers. Only hotkey support were implemented on the patches found in various archives.

The driver never made it to Linux mainline, but it stayed around the -mm tree for a while.
