+Description
+-----------
+
+The Standard Microsystems Corporation (SMSC) / Microchip EMC14xx chips
+contain up to four temperature sensors. EMC14x2 support two sensors
+(one internal, one external). EMC14x3 support three sensors (one internal,
+two external), and EMC14x4 support four sensors (one internal, three
+external).
+
+The chips implement three limits for each sensor: low (tempX_min), high
+(tempX_max) and critical (tempX_crit.) The chips also implement an
+hysteresis mechanism which applies to all limits. The relative difference
+is stored in a single register on the chip, which means that the relative
+difference between the limit and its hysteresis is always the same for
+all three limits.
+
+This implementation detail implies the following:
+* When setting a limit, its hysteresis will automatically follow, the
+ difference staying unchanged. For example, if the old critical limit
+ was 80 degrees C, and the hysteresis was 75 degrees C, and you change
+ the critical limit to 90 degrees C, then the hysteresis will
+ automatically change to 85 degrees C.
+* The hysteresis values can't be set independently. We decided to make
+ only temp1_crit_hyst writable, while all other hysteresis attributes
+ are read-only. Setting temp1_crit_hyst writes the difference between
+ temp1_crit_hyst and temp1_crit into the chip, and the same relative
+ hysteresis applies automatically to all other limits.
+* The limits should be set before the hysteresis.

+The Linux Hardware Monitoring kernel API.
+=========================================
+
+Guenter Roeck
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+This document describes the API that can be used by hardware monitoring
+drivers that want to use the hardware monitoring framework.
+
+This document does not describe what a hardware monitoring (hwmon) Driver or
+Device is. It also does not describe the API which can be used by user space
+to communicate with a hardware monitoring device. If you want to know this
+then please read the following file: Documentation/hwmon/sysfs-interface.
+
+For additional guidelines on how to write and improve hwmon drivers, please
+also read Documentation/hwmon/submitting-patches.
+
+The API
+-------
+Each hardware monitoring driver must #include <linux/hwmon.h> and, in most
+cases, <linux/hwmon-sysfs.h>. linux/hwmon.h declares the following
+register/unregister functions:
+
+struct device *hwmon_device_register(struct device *dev);
+struct device *
+hwmon_device_register_with_groups(struct device *dev, const char *name,
+ void *drvdata,
+ const struct attribute_group **groups);
+
+struct device *
+devm_hwmon_device_register_with_groups(struct device *dev,
+ const char *name, void *drvdata,
+ const struct attribute_group **groups);
+
+void hwmon_device_unregister(struct device *dev);
+void devm_hwmon_device_unregister(struct device *dev);
+
+hwmon_device_register registers a hardware monitoring device. The parameter
+of this function is a pointer to the parent device.
+This function returns a pointer to the newly created hardware monitoring device
+or PTR_ERR for failure. If this registration function is used, hardware
+monitoring sysfs attributes are expected to have been created and attached to
+the parent device prior to calling hwmon_device_register. A name attribute must
+have been created by the caller.
+
+hwmon_device_register_with_groups is similar to hwmon_device_register. However,
+it has additional parameters. The name parameter is a pointer to the hwmon
+device name. The registration function wil create a name sysfs attribute
+pointing to this name. The drvdata parameter is the pointer to the local
+driver data. hwmon_device_register_with_groups will attach this pointer
+to the newly allocated hwmon device. The pointer can be retrieved by the driver
+using dev_get_drvdata() on the hwmon device pointer. The groups parameter is
+a pointer to a list of sysfs attribute groups. The list must be NULL terminated.
+hwmon_device_register_with_groups creates the hwmon device with name attribute
+as well as all sysfs attributes attached to the hwmon device.
+
+devm_hwmon_device_register_with_groups is similar to
+hwmon_device_register_with_groups. However, it is device managed, meaning the
+hwmon device does not have to be removed explicitly by the removal function.
+
+hwmon_device_unregister deregisters a registered hardware monitoring device.
+The parameter of this function is the pointer to the registered hardware
+monitoring device structure. This function must be called from the driver
+remove function if the hardware monitoring device was registered with
+hwmon_device_register or with hwmon_device_register_with_groups.
+
+devm_hwmon_device_unregister does not normally have to be called. It is only
+needed for error handling, and only needed if the driver probe fails after
+the call to devm_hwmon_device_register_with_groups.
+
+The header file linux/hwmon-sysfs.h provides a number of useful macros to
+declare and use hardware monitoring sysfs attributes.
+
+In many cases, you can use the exsting define DEVICE_ATTR to declare such
+attributes. This is feasible if an attribute has no additional context. However,
+in many cases there will be additional information such as a sensor index which
+will need to be passed to the sysfs attribute handling function.
+
+SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR and SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR_2 can be used to define attributes
+which need such additional context information. SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR requires
+one additional argument, SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR_2 requires two.
+
+SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR defines a struct sensor_device_attribute variable.
+This structure has the following fields.
+
+struct sensor_device_attribute {
+ struct device_attribute dev_attr;
+ int index;
+};
+
+You can use to_sensor_dev_attr to get the pointer to this structure from the
+attribute read or write function. Its parameter is the device to which the
+attribute is attached.
+
+SENSOR_DEVICE_ATTR_2 defines a struct sensor_device_attribute_2 variable,
+which is defined as follows.
+
+struct sensor_device_attribute_2 {
+ struct device_attribute dev_attr;
+ u8 index;
+ u8 nr;
+};
+
+Use to_sensor_dev_attr_2 to get the pointer to this structure. Its parameter
+is the device to which the attribute is attached.

+Kernel driver nct6683
+=====================
+
+Supported chips:
+ * Nuvoton NCT6683D
+ Prefix: 'nct6683'
+ Addresses scanned: ISA address retrieved from Super I/O registers
+ Datasheet: Available from Nuvoton upon request
+
+Authors:
+ Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver implements support for the Nuvoton NCT6683D eSIO chip.
+
+The chips implement up to shared 32 temperature and voltage sensors.
+It supports up to 16 fan rotation sensors and up to 8 fan control engines.
+
+Temperatures are measured in degrees Celsius. Measurement resolution is
+0.5 degrees C.
+
+Voltage sensors (also known as IN sensors) report their values in millivolts.
+
+Fan rotation speeds are reported in RPM (rotations per minute).
+
+Usage Note
+----------
+
+Limit register locations on Intel boards with EC firmware version 1.0
+build date 04/03/13 do not match the register locations in the Nuvoton
+datasheet. Nuvoton confirms that Intel uses a special firmware version
+with different register addresses. The specification describing the Intel
+firmware is held under NDA by Nuvoton and Intel and not available
+to the public.
+
+Some of the register locations can be reverse engineered; others are too
+well hidden. Given this, writing any values from the operating system is
+considered too risky with this firmware and has been disabled. All limits
+must all be written from the BIOS.
+
+The driver has only been tested with the Intel firmware, and by default
+only instantiates on Intel boards. To enable it on non-Intel boards,
+set the 'force' module parameter to 1.
+
+Tested Boards and Firmware Versions
+-----------------------------------
+
+The driver has been reported to work with the following boards and
+firmware versions.
