13	Description
14	-----------
15	
16	SMSC SCH5627 Super I/O chips include complete hardware monitoring
17	capabilities. They can monitor up to 5 voltages, 4 fans and 8 temperatures.
18	
19	The SMSC SCH5627 hardware monitoring part also contains an integrated
20	watchdog. In order for this watchdog to function some motherboard specific
21	initialization most be done by the BIOS, so if the watchdog is not enabled
22	by the BIOS the sch5627 driver will not register a watchdog device.
23	
24	The hardware monitoring part of the SMSC SCH5627 is accessed by talking
25	through an embedded microcontroller. An application note describing the
26	protocol for communicating with the microcontroller is available upon
27	request. Please mail me if you want a copy.
