sht15 kernel module

this is my first post here, so I hope I’m posting this in the right place.

Boring intro:

I’m using the sht71 (see 1) humidity and temperature sensor on the beaglebone. This sensor is supported by the sht15 kernel module. I adapted the sht15.c code to run in user-space using sysfs and it works. Not exactly a clean solution… How do I use the module directly?
I’m using device tree overlays for another sensor (bmp085) and it works great.

The actual question:

Is it possible to load the sht15 kernel module and pass the necessary platform data using device tree overlays? There isn’t any info about the sht15 in the kernel under:


Does that mean that the module doesn’t support the device tree overlay approach?
