Brilliant! Well done.

Could you please test your quirk with HAL using this as a guide:

Hmm, does that mean that I need to install Fedora on these laptops? I
have fedora 7 installed on my personal laptop but all other laptops I
can only test using Fedora 7 Live CD.

Is there a way to make hal reload config files with quirks after I add
new config lines to it?

And then submit a patch against hal-info using this guide:

This way you get credit for finding the quirk. If any of the
instructions don't make sense, please mention it, so I can make things

I think it's a bit late for F7 prime, but we can get this information
into a 0-day hal-info update pretty easily.

Well done for finding the quirk!
