+Kernel driver i2c-nforce2
+Supported adapters:
+ * nForce2 MCP 10de:0064
+ * nForce2 Ultra 400 MCP 10de:0084
+ * nForce3 Pro150 MCP 10de:00D4
+ * nForce3 250Gb MCP 10de:00E4
+ * nForce4 MCP 10de:0052
+Datasheet: not publically available, but seems to be similar to the
+ AMD-8111 SMBus 2.0 adapter.

+i2c-nforce2 is a driver for the SMBuses included in the nVidia nForce2 MCP.
+If your 'lspci -v' listing shows something like the following,
+00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0064 (rev a2)
+ Subsystem: Asustek Computer, Inc.: Unknown device 0c11
+ Flags: 66Mhz, fast devsel, IRQ 5
+ I/O ports at c000 [size=32]
+ Capabilities: <available only to root>
+then this driver should support the SMBuses of your motherboard.
+The SMBus adapter in the nForce2 chipset seems to be very similar to the
+SMBus 2.0 adapter in the AMD-8111 southbridge. However, I could only get
+the driver to work with direct I/O access, which is different to the EC
+interface of the AMD-8111. Tested on Asus A7N8X. The ACPI DSDT table of the
+Asus A7N8X lists two SMBuses, both of which are supported by this driver.
