HISTORYThe acpiwmi device driver appeared in NetBSD 6.0.
AUTHORS<firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote acpiwmi and most of the mappings.
CAVEATSWhile WMI should provide a certain degree of portability across laptop models from a particular vendor, there is no guarantee that the mappings are functional in all models.
The wmihp driver may conflict with hpqlb(4).
