The situation is quite similar to #858975 where I asked for enabling CONFIG_W1_MASTER_GPIO. In both cases, a device tree needs to supply the information. > That's a fair point.

I fully agree here and second the request for CONFIG_DHT11. Enabling this driver is another piece to shrinking the gap with Raspbian and making Debian a viable alternative on these devices. If you disagree here, you should revert #858975 for consistency's sake. Helmut
