I took a look at the driver, and it seems to work for me... I'd like
to get it to the mainline...

I wonder if mdps was really a better name? Driver is HP-specific
(because of the ACPI usage), not really chip specific... and lis3lv02d
looks like an alphabet soup to me...

Ok, it is a bit chip-specific, too...

What are the next plans... lm_sensors is listed as orphan in
MAINTAINERS, so I guess I'll clean it up a tiny bit then submit to akpm?
