On an ACPI there is an IOCTL that will collate battery information from anything in the battery devclass. There is an acpi_battery_register function, but what it actually does is set up sysctls. I have a patch to land (hopefully this week) that you would need first. I have a driver for a maxim fuel gauge on a unreasonably complicated laptop that includes an example of what you have to do to be a battery: https://github.com/adventureloop/gpdpocket/blob/master/chvpower/chvpower.c#L148 To support battery on arm (say for the pinebook) we need a more general system. I plan to extract out the current battery code from acpi as a first attempt at this. - [tj] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
