                TP_DMI_MATCH("IBM", "ThinkPad X24"),
                TP_DMI_MATCH("LENOVO", "ThinkPad E420"), //ADD

and comment line 489 this source code
   if (!check_dmi_for_ec()) {
             "thinkpad_ec: no ThinkPad embedded controller!\n");
      return -ENODEV;

You can try this (add your model info into the tp_smapi source code).

EDIT: Ah sorry, seems like you have tried it.
