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.

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
