Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-restricted-modules-generic

IBM/Lenovo laptops include a generic hardware interface which can be
addressed and used for several hardware managing purposes after a gpl'ed
kernel module has been loaded: tp_smapi.ko

Further information about this module can be found at

I'd really appreciate if you included this module into the linux-generic
or linux-restricted-modules packages and also patched the hdaps module
according to the instructions on the page given above so that these two
modules don't interfer with each other.

Keep up your great work - you really rock!!

best regards,
