12	Description
13	-----------
14	
15	SMSC SCH5636 Super I/O chips include an embedded microcontroller for
16	hardware monitoring solutions, allowing motherboard manufacturers to create
17	their own custom hwmon solution based upon the SCH5636.
18	
19	Currently the sch5636 driver only supports the Fujitsu Theseus SCH5636 based
20	hwmon solution. The sch5636 driver runs a sanity check on loading to ensure
21	it is dealing with a Fujitsu Theseus and not with another custom SCH5636 based
22	hwmon solution.
23	
24	The Fujitsu Theseus can monitor up to 5 voltages, 8 fans and 16
25	temperatures. Note that the driver detects how many fan headers /
26	temperature sensors are actually implemented on the motherboard, so you will
27	likely see fewer temperature and fan inputs.
28	
29	The Fujitsu Theseus hwmon solution also contains an integrated watchdog.
30	This watchdog is fully supported by the sch5636 driver.
31	
32	An application note describing the Theseus' registers, as well as an
33	application note describing the protocol for communicating with the
34	microcontroller is available upon request. Please mail me if you want a copy.
