> Yes, I have an IT8783F hw configuration with voltage in7 connected to 1.1V nominal. I can give it a re-test with the latest patches applied on beginning of next week against kernel 2.6.32. Then I can also ask if my hw colleagues have an idea about the pin 91 mystery.
In our design, the IT8783F's Pin 91 is defined as VIN7, and likewise bit2 of index 0x2C is 1.
As I'm not yet used to git: which would be the easiest way to get the it87 with all patches integrated for kernel 2.6.32 for testing purposes? On your github site, I didn't find the appropriate entry for the patches you sent...
