I'm not sure my review is worth much, but the driver seems to work. I've tested
fan speed measurement, changing pwm2_enable to 1, changing the fan speed,
and changing back to 5. Everything looks good.

The only weird thing I noticed is that, the first time I ran sensors, I got:
fan2: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM, div = 64)
and thereafter I get
fan2: 136 RPM (min = 0 RPM, div = 64) ALARM

I suspect (although I haven't checked) that sensors is just reading
div after it's already changed to 64.
