Qualcomm Vibrator Driver Queued For Linux 5.1
Just over three-hundred lines of code is the new msm-vibrator driver now queued into the input subsystem ahead of the upcoming Linux 5.1 kernel. This basic driver is enough to get the vibration hardware working with various Qualcomm-powered devices, like the LG Nexus 5.
So should you be running a supported device and have been wanting to get the hardware vibrator working, the Linux 5.1 kernel is set to introduce this new driver based on the msm_pwm_vibrator code used by various Android+Qualcomm devices.
