I've got that on my TODO list. I'll soon work on that driver again. I'm still
waiting for that #§$?& NDA-covered datasheet of the LM94. As soon as I've got
that, I need to review all these values anyway because there might be subtle
differences between LM93 and LM94.
For the moment, I'd like to postpone the decision about what to do with temp4.
Thanks anyway for pointing this out.
