Subject[patch 80/96] hwmon: (f71882fg) Hide misleading error message
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Jean Delvare <>

commit 603eaa1bdd3e0402085e815cc531bb0a32827a9e upstream

If the F71882FG chip is at address 0x4e, then the probe at 0x2e will
fail with the following message in the logs:
f71882fg: Not a Fintek device

This is misleading because there is a Fintek device, just at a
different address. So I propose to degrade this message to a debug
