Description Gordon Malm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-05 08:58:39 UTC
Please consider adding IT8720 sensor support to gentoo-sources-2.6.27*.

Works great (but requires lm_sensors-3.0.3).;a=commitdiff;h=47fd550939fc9f1dd0a20a59d4db83f9b7a164ad

Might also want this, though not strictly necessary.;a=commitdiff;h=4ed1077953f531b3fef4af4b4ade48a828c48869

Thanks. :)

Our policy is to only add backports from Linus' development tree.[1] Let's both keep an eye on this to see when it gets committed.

Mike, I think -next patches are OK. They will be pushed upstream in the next cycle. You could also confirm that it's in the I2C development tree, which is as good as upstream in most cases.
Comment 3 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 16:01:39 UTC
That's good news for users. Let's update our policies and I'll work on the patch.
Comment 4 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2008-11-17 17:26:39 UTC
Patch included in gentoo-sources-2.6.27-r3 which is now in portage.
Comment 5 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-12-14 13:30:48 UTC
Mike, just a quick note: it's not safe to combine 2 patches in the same file like you did here. The 2nd part will not be applied, and it confuses tools like quilt. I've split them now.
