chromebook_platform – support driver for hardware on various Chromebook models



To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines into the kernel configuration file: device chromebook_platform

Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):



The chromebook_platform driver provides automatic configuration for devices that cannot be enumerated or safely probed. In particular, I2C peripherals are different from model to model. chromebook_platform has a model-specific information about the I2C peripherals, their drivers, their bus attachments and slave addresses.

Note that chromebook_platform does not load driver modules for the peripherals. Those have to be compiled into the kernel or loaded separately.

Like a classics radio station whose play list spans decades, Unix simultaneously exhibits its mixed and dated heritage. There's Clash-era graphics interfaces; Beatles-era two-letter command names; and systems programs (for example, ps) whose terse and obscure output was designed for slow teletypes; Bing Crosby-era command editing (# and @ are still the default line editing commands), and Scott Joplin-era core dumps.
