bbswitch is a kernel module which automatically detects the required
ACPI calls for two kinds of Optimus laptops : "real" (e.g. Nvidia GT 425M)
and "legacy" (e.g. Nvidia GT 310M) Optimus laptops.
The universal calls should work for every laptop model supporting either
Optimus calls.
This package uses DKMS to automatically build the bbswitch kernel module.
