My suggestion for one to start with then is any one of these machines 
that use an EnE EC. (if any)  If they ship Linux then I would assume 
that all the necessary communication between Linux and the EC is 
working.  So inclusion of the factory EC code should Just Work.  If you 
do end up needed to did deeper and you can't get any info from the 
manufacturer then EnE is your best bet for reverse engineering.
