/proc/acpi/ibm/ecdump is really not providing any information about this
sensor. yesterday, I almost broke the laptop to see if it would generate
anything, but it really only outputs ACPI events...

I shaked it, moved it 90deg and still no result, threw the lappy from like
40cm to the bed and nothing was really generated. Unless it is too fast like
to generate it in the watch or to be seen by human eye. I dunno.

It looks like /ecdump won't do it.
