Re: aibs(4): ASUSTeK AI Booster (ACPI ATK0110) hardware monitor with limit support

Kewl - I'll have a good look at it today.

Hi, Attached patch provides support for the hardware monitoring capabilities that are present in many modern desktop motherboards from ASUS featuring the ATK0110 ACPI device. This driver, aibs(4), is a replacement to NetBSD's existing aiboost(4). The differences between the two include limit support in aibs(4), as well as generally cleaner and easier to read code, since the driver has been rewritten and retested from scratch (albeit originally for a different OS):
$ wc aiboost.c atk0110.c
   451    1347   11871 aiboost.c
450 1298 10671 atk0110.c Fewer lines of code for more functionality is always nice. :-) Both aibs(4) and aiboost(4) can be build into the same kernel: aibs(4) returns a higher confidence value in its match routine, so it will win in autoconf(9) over aiboost(4). This patch does not yet remove aiboost(4), although the presence of aibs(4) does make aiboost(4) rather obsolete and redundant. Limits are automatically gathered by aibs(4) and monitored through sysmon_envsys(9), and are viewable from envstat(8). The manual page is included and has more details, as well as example output.
