|General information like which GPE is assigned to the EC and whether
|the global lock should get used.
|Knowing the EC GPE one can watch the amount of HW events related to
|the EC here (XY -> GPE number from /sys/kernel/debug/ec/*/gpe):
|The io file is binary and a userspace tool located here:
|should get used to read out the 256 Embedded Controller registers
|or writing to them.
|CAUTION: Do not write to the Embedded Controller if you don't know
|what you are doing! Rebooting afterwards also is a good idea.
|This can influence the way your machine is cooled and fans may
|not get switched on again after you did a wrong write.
