  13-----------
  14
  15SMSC SCH5636 Super I/O chips include an embedded microcontroller for
  16hardware monitoring solutions, allowing motherboard manufacturers to create
  17their own custom hwmon solution based upon the SCH5636.
  18
  19Currently the sch5636 driver only supports the Fujitsu Theseus SCH5636 based
  20hwmon solution. The sch5636 driver runs a sanity check on loading to ensure
  21it is dealing with a Fujitsu Theseus and not with another custom SCH5636 based
  22hwmon solution.
  23
  24The Fujitsu Theseus can monitor up to 5 voltages, 8 fans and 16
  25temperatures. Note that the driver detects how many fan headers /
  26temperature sensors are actually implemented on the motherboard, so you will
  27likely see fewer temperature and fan inputs.
  28
  29The Fujitsu Theseus hwmon solution also contains an integrated watchdog.
  30This watchdog is fully supported by the sch5636 driver.
  31
  32An application note describing the Theseus' registers, as well as an
  33application note describing the protocol for communicating with the
  34microcontroller is available upon request. Please mail me if you want a copy.
