The above is not necessarily correct -- many of the chips supported by
the lm(4) driver, on NetBSD, OpenBSD and DragonFly BSD, certainly do,
in fact, implement a whole bunch of fan-controlling features; see for a sample BSD implementation of the
fan controlling logic.

From the manual you've found,

Winbond W83627HF is supported by both,n,d/wbsio.4 and,o,d/lm.4, and is one of the chips supported by the
fanctl patch above, too.

However, the above manual from Tyan doesn't appear to specify how
exactly are the fans actually wired up (e.g., to which pins on which
