hwmon: (it87) Verify the VID pin usage
The VID input pins can alternatively be used as GPIOs. Make sure we have at least 4 pins used for VID, otherwise don't bother reading and exposing VID. Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org> Tested-by: Adam Nielsen <a.nielsen@shikadi.net>

@@ -86,7 +86,6 @@ The IT8712F and IT8716F additionally feature VID inputs, used to report
the Vcore voltage of the processor. The early IT8712F have 5 VID pins,
the IT8716F and late IT8712F have 6. They are shared with other functions
though, so the functionality may not be available on a given system.
-The driver dumbly assume it is there.
The IT8718F and IT8720F also features VID inputs (up to 8 pins) but the value
is stored in the Super-I/O configuration space. Due to technical limitations,
