Hello,
I'm completely fine with the move (it was in hwmon only because in the 
first place there were other accelerometers there). So here is my:
Acked-by: Éric Piel <eric.piel at tremplin-utc.net>

I'll try to test the changes tomorrow (on an HP notebook), to confirm.

BTW, why do hp_accel has to be in a different directory than the rest? 
To me it's just a different interface to the chip: ACPI/HP, instead of 
SPI or I²C.

See you,
Eric
