[PATCH] hwmon: Documentation update for abituguru
Documentation update for the new bank1_types module param. Also add what we know about different revisions of the uGuru and a note that the abituguru driver unfortunatly does not work with the latest and greatest motherboards, which have what I think is revision 4 of the uGuru.

+ The uGuru is a microcontroller with onboard firmware which programs
+ it to behave as a hwmon IC. There are many different revisions of the
+ firmware and thus effectivly many different revisions of the uGuru.
+ Below is an incomplete list with which revisions are used for which
+ Motherboards:
+ uGuru 1.00 ~ 1.24 (AI7, KV8-MAX3, AN7) (1)
+ uGuru ~ (KV8-PRO)
+ uGuru ~ (AS8, AV8, AA8, AG8, AA8XE, AX8)

+ uGuru ~ (AN8)
+ uGuru ~ (AW8, AL8, NI8)
+ uGuru 4.xxxxx? (AT8 32X) (2)
+ 1) For revisions 2 and 3 uGuru's the driver can autodetect the
+ sensortype (Volt or Temp) for bank1 sensors, for revision 1 uGuru's
+ this doesnot always work. For these uGuru's the autodection can
+ be overriden with the bank1_types module param. For all 3 known
+ revison 1 motherboards the correct use of this param is:
+ bank1_types=1,1,0,0,0,0,0,2,0,0,0,0,2,0,0,1
+ You may also need to specify the fan_sensors option for these boards
+ fan_sensors=5
+ 2) The current version of the abituguru driver is known to NOT work
+ on these Motherboards
