Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] ACPI: surface3_power: MSHW0011 rev-eng implementation

Hi Andy,

I am resurrecting this thread now that ACPICA seemed to finally have
fixed the bug that prevent the driver to work.
The patch I submitted was reverted shortly after, which lead me to
ignore this review until ACPICA was fixed. It took a lot of effort
from Hans to have a fix accepted, so now we can hope to upstream this
driver.

OK. On this note, I have been mentioned that the Surface Pro 2017 uses
a similar mechanism as in it's also using an operation region handler,
but this time over UART, not I2C :)

If you don't mind, I'd rather have the polling version that seems to
be working first. I haven't touched the logs I had from Windows since
last year, so I am a little bit rusty on debugging this.
FWIW, /proc/interrupts doesn't change a bit when I unplug/replug the
power cable.

My guess is that the Windows driver initializes the chip in a
different way and this enables the cable detection.

Roger that!

I can't really make the buffer 4 time bigger. The buffer is then used
by the DSDT table to report the _BIX status, so the length of 10 is
mandatory.
It doesn't seem to hurt, and worse case, we will just strip the
serial, not a big deal IMO.

I replaced the 'version' by 'mask' in v3. It doesn't hurt to do so.

Looks like things are working fine now. So I can just submit the
driver without bothering the I2C core team :)
