I don't see hp-wmi in MAINTAINERS, but in general platform drivers go
via the ACPI tree.

It looks like several others have discovered this issue the hard way
:-).  <http://www.pubbs.net/kernel/201001/14288/>.

Fortunately it has been fixed in the acpi tree and now submitted to
Linus.  <http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-Lists/Kernel/2010-01/msg02511.html>.

Alan
