  Description     : HDAPS daemon for IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads

 daemon which reads the Hard Drive Active Protection System sensor
 (called accelerometer) and parks the hard drive, if a "bad" movement is

Some time ago, I've created packages for tp-smapi [1], which included
modules of the improved HDAPS driver. With this module, it is possible
to read the movement of the laptop. That's the job of hdapsd [2], it
reads and if it detects a unusual movement (eg. e drop), it parks the
disk heads, so the disk won't be demaged.
Actually, a patch for the kernel is needed to be able to park the disk,
but I hope it will soon get into mainline (2.6.21?) or I will package
it too.
I plan this packages for Etch+1, so there hopefully won't be any
problems with the kernel.

Kind regards
