-Module Parameters
------------------
-
-* force_i2c: int
- Initialize the I2C address of the sensors
-* init: int
- (default is 1)
- Use 'init=0' to bypass initializing the chip.
- Try this if your computer crashes when you load the module.
-
-Description
------------
-
-This driver implements support for ISA accesses *only* for
-the Winbond W83627HF, W83627THF, W83697HF and W83637HF Super I/O chips.
-We will refer to them collectively as Winbond chips.
-
-This driver supports ISA accesses, which should be more reliable
-than i2c accesses. Also, for Tyan boards which contain both a
-Super I/O chip and a second i2c-only Winbond chip (often a W83782D),
-using this driver will avoid i2c address conflicts and complex
-initialization that were required in the w83781d driver.
-
-If you really want i2c accesses for these Super I/O chips,
-use the w83781d driver. However this is not the preferred method
-now that this ISA driver has been developed.
-
-The w83627_HF_ uses pins 110-106 as VID0-VID4. The w83627_THF_ uses the
-same pins as GPIO[0:4]. Technically, the w83627_THF_ does not support a
-VID reading. However the two chips have the identical 128 pin package. So,
-it is possible or even likely for a w83627thf to have the VID signals routed
-to these pins despite their not being labeled for that purpose. Therefore,
-the w83627thf driver interprets these as VID. If the VID on your board
-doesn't work, first see doc/vid in the lm_sensors package[1]. If that still
-doesn't help, you may just ignore the bogus VID reading with no harm done.
-
-For further information on this driver see the w83781d driver documentation.

-Forcing the address
--------------------
-
-The driver used to have a module parameter named force_addr, which could
-be used to force the base I/O address of the hardware monitoring block.
-This was meant as a workaround for mainboards with a broken BIOS. This
-module parameter is gone for technical reasons. If you need this feature,
-you can obtain the same result by using the isaset tool (part of
-lm-sensors) before loading the driver:
-
-# Enter the Super I/O config space
-isaset -y -f 0x2e 0x87
-isaset -y -f 0x2e 0x87
-
-# Select the hwmon logical device
-isaset -y 0x2e 0x2f 0x07 0x0b
-
-# Set the base I/O address (to 0x290 in this example)
-isaset -y 0x2e 0x2f 0x60 0x02
-isaset -y 0x2e 0x2f 0x61 0x90
-
-# Exit the Super-I/O config space
-isaset -y -f 0x2e 0xaa
-
-The above sequence assumes a Super-I/O config space at 0x2e/0x2f, but
-0x4e/0x4f is also possible.

-Voltage pin mapping
--------------------
-
-Here is a summary of the voltage pin mapping for the W83627THF. This
-can be useful to convert data provided by board manufacturers into
-working libsensors configuration statements.
-
- W83627THF |
- Pin | Name | Register | Sysfs attribute
------------------------------------------------------
- 100 | CPUVCORE | 20h | in0
- 99 | VIN0 | 21h | in1
- 98 | VIN1 | 22h | in2
- 97 | VIN2 | 24h | in4
- 114 | AVCC | 23h | in3
- 61 | 5VSB | 50h (bank 5) | in7
- 74 | VBAT | 51h (bank 5) | in8
-
-For other supported devices, you'll have to take the hard path and
-look up the information in the datasheet yourself (and then add it
-to this document please.)
