-Kernel driver i2c-sis96x
-
-Replaces 2.4.x i2c-sis645
-
-Supported adapters:
- * Silicon Integrated Systems Corp (SiS)
- Any combination of these host bridges:
- 645, 645DX (aka 646), 648, 650, 651, 655, 735, 745, 746
- and these south bridges:
- 961, 962, 963(L)

-Description
------------
-
-This SMBus only driver is known to work on motherboards with the above
-named chipset combinations. The driver was developed without benefit of a
-proper datasheet from SiS. The SMBus registers are assumed compatible with
-those of the SiS630, although they are located in a completely different
-place. Thanks to Alexander Malysh <amalysh@web.de> for providing the
-SiS630 datasheet (and driver).
-
-The command "lspci" as root should produce something like these lines:
-
-00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]: Unknown device 0645
-00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 85C503/5513
-00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]: Unknown device 0016
-
-or perhaps this...
-
-00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]: Unknown device 0645
-00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]: Unknown device 0961
-00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]: Unknown device 0016
-
-(kernel versions later than 2.4.18 may fill in the "Unknown"s)
-
-If you can't see it please look on quirk_sis_96x_smbus
-(drivers/pci/quirks.c) (also if southbridge detection fails)
-
-I suspect that this driver could be made to work for the following SiS
-chipsets as well: 635, and 635T. If anyone owns a board with those chips
-AND is willing to risk crashing & burning an otherwise well-behaved kernel
-in the name of progress... please contact me at <mhoffman@lightlink.com> or
-via the linux-i2c mailing list: <linux-i2c@vger.kernel.org>. Please send bug
-reports and/or success stories as well.
-
-
-TO DOs
-------
-
-* The driver does not support SMBus block reads/writes; I may add them if a
-scenario is found where they're needed.
