    This trivial patch adds support for i8k on the new Dell Vostro models.
    I tested it on my Vostro 1400, and it works. It does print a warning
    when loading the module:

    i8k: unable to get SMM BIOS version

    But I couldn't figure out how to fix that. The module seems to work fine,
    anyway...
