Hi Ioannis,
hi Nikos,

thanks for your patch.
Unfortunately, my data sheet for this chip is too old to find any of the
values for ACPI. Uwe will probably review your patch soon. He knows
these Winbond SuperI/O chips very well.

Stefan and Ron get thousands of mails per day. Either your mail ended up
in a spam filter (a sender name of "Nooone Nowhere" may cause that) or
they simply overlooked it in the mail flood.

Patches are usually sent to the mailing list.

You don't need a svn account to contribute. It is possible to check out
our svn tree anonymously and send diffs (like you did).
Direct check ins to our svn tree are not possible because all patches
have to be reviewed on the mailing list first.
http://www.coreboot.org/Development_Guidelines has some info, but it
surely could be extended a bit.

The mailing list is moderated to keep spam out (hundreds of spam mails
per day are stopped by that). If someone is not subscribed, his/her post
will usually be approved by a moderator after a few hours, so
subscribing is not strictly needed.
