Linux 5.19 Adds In Raptor Lake P For Intel PMC Driver, More Gigabyte Boards For Sensors
First up, the Intel PMC driver has added Raptor Lake P support. Just the new ID for Raptor Lake P was necessary for Intel PMC, the driver responsible for interfacing with Intel Core SoCs power management controller. No other changes were needed to this power management controller driver and thus a safe post merge window addition especially with Intel Raptor Lake P not even coming out to the masses still for a number of months.
Also notable with today's platform-drivers-x86 pull for Linux 5.19-rc2 are updates to the Gigabyte-WMI driver. New IDs added there expanding the Gigabyte motherboard sensor support is handling for the B450M DS3H-CF and Z690M AORUS ELITE AX DDR4. Over the past year the Gigabyte-WMI driver has come together for the mainline kernel via the Linux community and supporting a number of different Gigabyte motherboards for temperature sensors and other bits via this WMI ACPI driver.
Gigabyte Z690M AORUS ELITE AX DDR4
The Gigabyte B450M DS3H-CF is a ~$60 micro-ATX AMD B450 motherboard while the Gigabyte Z690M AORUS ELITE AX DDR4 is a current-generation ~$240 USD Intel Alder Lake motherboard.
