+Module Parameters
+-----------------
+
+* force_addr=0xaddr Set the I/O base address. Useful for boards
+ that don't set the address in the BIOS. Does not do a
+ PCI force; the device must still be present in lspci.
+ Don't use this unless the driver complains that the
+ base address is not set.
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+i2c-sis5595 is a true SMBus host driver for motherboards with the SiS5595
+southbridges.
+
+WARNING: If you are trying to access the integrated sensors on the SiS5595
+chip, you want the sis5595 driver for those, not this driver. This driver
+is a BUS driver, not a CHIP driver. A BUS driver is used by other CHIP
+drivers to access chips on the bus.
