SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/3] hwmon: (nct6775) Support lock by ACPI mutex

Could you please provide a some feedback about such idea?

I have bigger list of supported boards that requires ACPI mutex lock,
but I prefer to have some feedback before send next version of patch.

I have created separate patch[1] with only boards where WMI methods is
enough. And if work on patch takes some time/additional patch
versions(for sure it will), I prefer to have that patch merged and
rebase current patch over resulted list of boards.

Thank you.
