If you have your disassembled dsdt acpi table at hand, just grep it for PNP0C32. If
PNP0C32 is referenced then yes, it should support.

Anyway, you can always build the kernel module and load it. It won't harm your laptop
in case it's not supported.

Have a look at the project page for more information: http://quickstart.sourceforge.net
