This is not a cheap device, this has been seen on a Lenovo Yoga 11e,
the yoga's typically have an accelerometer in both the base and the display
and have no use for a magnetometer. Not saying that you're wrong,
but my expectations are different. Anyways we need to find someone to
test this, I asked Jeremy to write a patch for this because we had
Yoga 11e user (Lars Kellogg-Stedman in the CC) asking question and
Jeremy did ask that Lars to test.

It looks like we will need to reach out to Lars and get some testing done
to figure this out one way or the other.

Lars if you're reading this can you please reply. If you've trouble
building your own kernels for testing, would you be willing to install
Fedora so that we can provide test kernels for you?




For reference here is the relevant DSDT blurb from the Yoga 11e:

Device (ACC)
Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address
Name (_HID, "BOSC0200") // _HID: Hardware ID
Name (_CID, "BOSC0200") // _CID: Compatible ID
Name (_DDN, "Accelerometer") // _DDN: DOS Device Name
Name (_UID, One) // _UID: Unique ID
Method (_CRS, 0, NotSerialized) // _CRS: Current Resource Settings
Name (RBUF, ResourceTemplate ()
I2cSerialBusV2 (0x0019, ControllerInitiated, 0x00061A80,
AddressingMode7Bit, "\\_SB.PCI0.I2C3",
0x00, ResourceConsumer, , Exclusive,
I2cSerialBusV2 (0x0018, ControllerInitiated, 0x00061A80,
AddressingMode7Bit, "\\_SB.PCI0.I2C3",
0x00, ResourceConsumer, , Exclusive,
Return (RBUF) /* \_SB_.PCI0.I2C3.ACC_._CRS.RBUF */
