-Kernel driver abituguru
-=======================
-
-Supported chips:
- * Abit uGuru revision 1 & 2 (Hardware Monitor part only)
- Prefix: 'abituguru'
- Addresses scanned: ISA 0x0E0
- Datasheet: Not available, this driver is based on reverse engineering.
- A "Datasheet" has been written based on the reverse engineering it
- should be available in the same dir as this file under the name
- abituguru-datasheet.
- Note:
- The uGuru is a microcontroller with onboard firmware which programs
- it to behave as a hwmon IC. There are many different revisions of the
- firmware and thus effectivly many different revisions of the uGuru.
- Below is an incomplete list with which revisions are used for which
- Motherboards:
- uGuru 1.00 ~ 1.24 (AI7, KV8-MAX3, AN7) (1)
- uGuru 2.0.0.0 ~ 2.0.4.2 (KV8-PRO)
- uGuru 2.1.0.0 ~ 2.1.2.8 (AS8, AV8, AA8, AG8, AA8XE, AX8)
- uGuru 2.2.0.0 ~ 2.2.0.6 (AA8 Fatal1ty)
- uGuru 2.3.0.0 ~ 2.3.0.9 (AN8)
- uGuru 3.0.0.0 ~ 3.0.x.x (AW8, AL8, AT8, NI8 SLI, AT8 32X, AN8 32X,
- AW9D-MAX) (2)
- 1) For revisions 2 and 3 uGuru's the driver can autodetect the
- sensortype (Volt or Temp) for bank1 sensors, for revision 1 uGuru's
- this doesnot always work. For these uGuru's the autodection can
- be overriden with the bank1_types module param. For all 3 known
- revison 1 motherboards the correct use of this param is:
- bank1_types=1,1,0,0,0,0,0,2,0,0,0,0,2,0,0,1
- You may also need to specify the fan_sensors option for these boards
- fan_sensors=5
- 2) There is a separate abituguru3 driver for these motherboards,
- the abituguru (without the 3 !) driver will not work on these
- motherboards (and visa versa)!

-Module Parameters
------------------
-
-* force: bool Force detection. Note this parameter only causes the
- detection to be skipped, and thus the insmod to
- succeed. If the uGuru can't be read the actual hwmon
- driver will not load and thus no hwmon device will get
- registered.
-* bank1_types: int[] Bank1 sensortype autodetection override:
- -1 autodetect (default)
- 0 volt sensor
- 1 temp sensor
- 2 not connected
-* fan_sensors: int Tell the driver how many fan speed sensors there are
- on your motherboard. Default: 0 (autodetect).
-* pwms: int Tell the driver how many fan speed controls (fan
- pwms) your motherboard has. Default: 0 (autodetect).
-* verbose: int How verbose should the driver be? (0-3):
- 0 normal output
- 1 + verbose error reporting
- 2 + sensors type probing info (default)
- 3 + retryable error reporting
- Default: 2 (the driver is still in the testing phase)
-
-Notice if you need any of the first three options above please insmod the
-driver with verbose set to 3 and mail me <j.w.r.degoede@hhs.nl> the output of:
-dmesg | grep abituguru

-
-Description
------------
-
-This driver supports the hardware monitoring features of the first and
-second revision of the Abit uGuru chip found on Abit uGuru featuring
-motherboards (most modern Abit motherboards).
-
-The first and second revision of the uGuru chip in reality is a Winbond
-W83L950D in disguise (despite Abit claiming it is "a new microprocessor
-designed by the ABIT Engineers"). Unfortunately this doesn't help since the
-W83L950D is a generic microcontroller with a custom Abit application running
-on it.
-
-Despite Abit not releasing any information regarding the uGuru, Olle
-Sandberg <ollebull@gmail.com> has managed to reverse engineer the sensor part
-of the uGuru. Without his work this driver would not have been possible.
-
-Known Issues
-------------
-
-The voltage and frequency control parts of the Abit uGuru are not supported.
