30	Description
31	-----------
32	
33	[From datasheets] The MAX16065/MAX16066 flash-configurable system managers
34	monitor and sequence multiple system voltages. The MAX16065/MAX16066 can also
35	accurately monitor (+/-2.5%) one current channel using a dedicated high-side
36	current-sense amplifier. The MAX16065 manages up to twelve system voltages
37	simultaneously, and the MAX16066 manages up to eight supply voltages.
38	
39	The MAX16067 flash-configurable system manager monitors and sequences multiple
40	system voltages. The MAX16067 manages up to six system voltages simultaneously.
41	
42	The MAX16068 flash-configurable system manager monitors and manages up to six
43	system voltages simultaneously.
44	
45	The MAX16070/MAX16071 flash-configurable system monitors supervise multiple
46	system voltages. The MAX16070/MAX16071 can also accurately monitor (+/-2.5%)
47	one current channel using a dedicated high-side current-sense amplifier. The
48	MAX16070 monitors up to twelve system voltages simultaneously, and the MAX16071
49	monitors up to eight supply voltages.
50	
51	Each monitored channel has its own low and high critical limits. MAX16065,
52	MAX16066, MAX16070, and MAX16071 support an additional limit which is
53	configurable as either low or high secondary limit. MAX16065, MAX16066,
54	MAX16070, and MAX16071 also support supply current monitoring.

57	Usage Notes
58	-----------
59	
60	This driver does not probe for devices, since there is no register which
61	can be safely used to identify the chip. You will have to instantiate
62	the devices explicitly. Please see Documentation/i2c/instantiating-devices for
63	details.
64	
65	WARNING: Do not access chip registers using the i2cdump command, and do not use
66	any of the i2ctools commands on a command register (0xa5 to 0xac). The chips
67	supported by this driver interpret any access to a command register (including
68	read commands) as request to execute the command in question. This may result in
69	power loss, board resets, and/or Flash corruption. Worst case, your board may
70	turn into a brick.
