Subject: [PATCH] dell-smm-hwmon.c: Add XPS 9570 to supported devices list
Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2018 15:44:08 +0000
Message-ID: <20181130154408.6525-1-michelesr@autistici.org> (raw)

Reviewed by: Pali Rohár <pali.rohar@gmail.com>

Allow the module to be loaded on Dell XPS 9570, without having to use
the "force=1" option. The module loads without problems, and reports
correct values:

    $ time cat /proc/i8k
    1.0 1.5 -1 35 0 0 0 0 -1 -22
    cat /proc/i8k  0.00s user 0.00s system 7% cpu 0.033 total

However, the call may freeze the kernel for a very small time due to
code running in the SSM layer. This is a known issue with the driver, and
can be reproduced with other supported models. Average execution
time is 33 ms.

The command line tools from i8kutils can properly set the fan speed,
although the firmware will override it, unless automatic fan
control is disabled with the proper SSM call.

Average fans speed (when firwmare automatic control is off):

STATE -> RPM
0 0 -> 0 0
1 1 -> 2500 2500
2 2 -> 5100 5100
3 3 -> same as 2 2

The SSM procedures I8K_SMM_GET_FAN_TYPE and I8K_SMM_GET_TEMP_TYPE are
failing to return valid values to the module, that can't label the fans
and initialize the temperature sensors in the hwmon interface.

This is a problem in the firmware code, and may be eventually addressed
by a new firmware version.

    $ sensors dell_smm-virtual-0
    dell_smm-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    fan1:        2531 RPM
    fan2:        2496 RPM

However, the procedures I8K_SMM_GET_FAN and I8K_SMM_GET_TEMP are working
properly, as they return correct values. This means that the module
could be modified to initialize the sensors without labels and report
correct temperatures.
