[PATCH v2 1/4] ACPI: EC: Add ec_get_handle()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

toshiba_acpi needs to execute an AML method within the EC namespace
to make hotkeys work on some platforms. Provide an interface to
allow it to easily get a handle to the EC namespace for this purpose.
