2011-11-30Input: add generic GPIO-tilt driverHeiko Stübner1-0/+103
There exist tilt switches that simply report their tilt-state via some gpios. The number and orientation of their axes can vary depending on the switch used and the build of the device. Also two or more one-axis switches could be combined to provide multi-dimensional orientation. One example of a device using such a switch is the family of Qisda ebook readers, where the switch provides information about the landscape / portrait orientation of the device. The example in Documentation/input/gpio-tilt.txt documents exactly this one-axis device. Signed-off-by: Heiko Stuebner <heiko@sntech.de> Signed-off-by: Dmitry Torokhov <dtor@mail.ru>

There are numerous broken references to Documentation files (in other Documentation files, in comments, etc.). These broken references are caused by typo's in the references, and by renames or removals of the Documentation files. Some broken references are simply odd.

2011-05-16Input: elantech - describe further the protocolÉric Piel1-23/+100
For some Dell laptops, Ubuntu had a special version of the elantech driver with more knowledge on the devices. It can be found there: http://zinc.ubuntu.com/git?p=mid-team/hardy-netbook.git;a=blob;f=drivers/input/mouse/elantech.c;h=d0e2cafed162428f72e3654f4dda85e08ea486b3;hb=refs/heads/abi-22 By inspecting the source code, and doing some test on a real hardware, I have completed the protocol specification (especially for the 6 bytes protocol). It also adds information about the mapping between the version reported by the device and the protocol to use.

Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.
