I had read about installation of Debian GNU/Linux (among others GNU/Linux distributions) on Lenovo Thinkpads issue few months back. I went again to investigate more and found out that some patches have been posted about one and a half month back. I also looked at some of the back-and-forth discussions but then it sort of stops. Does anybody know what is going on ? Is there going to be support for such affected laptops on say linux 4.9 (hopefully in Stretch) and backported to say linux 3.16 (i.e. Jessie) . Any ideas ?
