Yes, the HP x2 210 is UEFI only, but DragonFly *can* boot from UEFI :)
I did a port of FreeBSD's UEFI bootloader to DragonFly, which I commited
ca. 2 months ago, and I added basic support in the kernel for UEFI booting.
Only UEFI support in DragonFly's installer is still missing :(

It's not really an option here, to use the linux driver, since this I2c
bus has to integrate tightly with the operating-system for the ACPI
operation region handling, and the I2cSerialBus resource handling.
