    Andrew, Michal:

    Thanks for doing this... but Andrew please don't apply it. The sensors project
    people are working on these even now, and we already have a patch for the
    w83627hf driver...

    Jean Delvare (hwmon maintainer) should be sending these up the chain soon.

    Michal: if you're interested in fixing any of the rest of them, please take
    a look at the patch above to see the mechanism we intend to use. It actually
    makes the drivers *smaller* than they were.
