Subject[Experimental PATCH] dell-smm-hwmon: Add support for disabling automatic BIOS fan control
Date
This patch exports standard hwmon pwmX_enable sysfs attribute for enabling
or disabling automatic fan control by BIOS. Standard value "1" is for
disabling automatic BIOS fan control and value "2" for enabling.

Currently there is no way to check if BIOS auto mode is enabled (at least
it is not know how to do it), so hwmon sysfs attribute is write-only.

By default BIOS auto mode is enabled by laptop firmware.

When BIOS auto mode is enabled, custom fan speed value (set via hwmon pwmX
sysfs attribute) is overwritten by SMM in few seconds and therefore any
custom settings are without effect. So this is reason why implementing
option for disabling BIOS auto mode is needed.

So finally this patch allows kernel to set and control fan speed on
laptops, but it can be dangerous (like setting speed of other fans).

This new feature is highly experimental, uses Dell SMM calls, so does not
have to be supported by all laptops BIOSes. It was tested on Dell Latitude
E6440 with BIOS A5.
