Change 125385 by cnst at dale on 2007/08/20 03:50:39
add a caveats section documenting sensor_task differences
in OpenBSD 4.2, sensor_task was converted to use use OpenBSD's
workq_add_task(9), which is not available on FreeBSD.
In cnst-sensors, I have so far ported the older version of sensor_task
as all of the necessary functions that it uses are here on FreeBSD.
It is questionable whether sensor_task in soc2007/cnst-sensors should be
compatible with 4.2, because it will involve additional code that is, at
this point, noone except for me is testing. So for now, I think it is a
much wiser choice to stick with sensor_task that is compatible with 4.1,
and then when I'll have some testers, write an entirely new sensor_task
if that will be deemed necessary. P.S. Converting the drivers from old
sensor_task to new sensor_task (and back) is as easy as 123. :)
In any case, any help or hints with sensor_task is appreciated. The
current implementation for FreeBSD is long as available in the p4
repository, in soc2007/cnst-sensors/sys.kern/kern_sensors.c.
