Not to my knowledge. Ironically, one of the laptops supported, the HP
2133, is even sold with Linux pre-installed!

Yes, this could be also a place for the driver, but as all the other
accelerometer drivers are currently in hwmon, it was decided to put it
there as well. The plan is to move them to their own subsystem once a
accelerometer subsystem is agreed on (Jonathan Cameron is working on
this, with industrialio).
