 ### Conexant PCI DTV driver  
 I have some code for 23880-3 and 887 host interfaces.  
 This type of hardware is hard to find freely available docs for.  
 Tuner/demod drivers from Linux could be ported, but would still be GPLed.  
 Probably better to keep these drivers in userland.  
   
 Should try to coordinate with what FreeBSD is doing: <http://wiki.freebsd.org/HDTV>.

 ### Toshiba ACPI LCD backlight driver  
 Loosly based on [[!template id=man name="vald" section="4"]]. Currently attaches to `TOS1900`/`VALZ`, but doesn't interact with this device.  
 This driver should really attach to `\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.LCD` or  
 `\_SB.PCI0.PEGP.VGA.LCD`, which are the devices that get notified of  
 brightness button pushes, and contain the `_BCL`, `_BCM`, and `_BQC`  
 methods that access the brightness adjustment function.  
 Such an attachment does not appear to be possible (or at the very least, easy)  
 at present.
