    That doesn't help. See the it87 request_muxed patches pending. Because
    the port can be muxed we need to actually implement port muxing across
    the super I/O devices. That's a separate and larger problem altogether
    and this device will get fixed as we do the other so not a problem.

    A lot of these super I/O devices have no entirely safe autodetect, and
    the same is true for it87 and many others. There isn't a nice elegant
    solution really.
