Re: adt7xxx drivers (Was Re: Device name length restriction?)

If most supported chips comes from the ADT series (from your previous

closely related to the existing adt7463/adt7467 drivers.

Well, there's 8 chips in the adt74xx series (all of which bear the dBCOOL(tm) label), plus 7 more chips in the adm10xx (only one of which seems to be labelled dBCOOL). So it's pretty much a 50/50 split.

I actually like the idea of 'device dbcool' and the inevitable man page could easily refer to "dBCOOL(tm) and similar chips" as well as provide the definitive list and their full marketing names.
