+Kernel driver emc6w201
+Supported chips:
+ * SMSC EMC6W201
+ Prefix: 'emc6w201'
+ Addresses scanned: I2C 0x2c, 0x2d, 0x2e
+ Datasheet: Not public
+Author: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>
+From the datasheet:
+"The EMC6W201 is an environmental monitoring device with automatic fan
+control capability and enhanced system acoustics for noise suppression.
+This ACPI compliant device provides hardware monitoring for up to six
+voltages (including its own VCC) and five external thermal sensors,
+measures the speed of up to five fans, and controls the speed of
+multiple DC fans using three Pulse Width Modulator (PWM) outputs. Note
+that it is possible to control more than three fans by connecting two
+fans to one PWM output. The EMC6W201 will be available in a 36-pin
+QFN package."
+The device is functionally close to the EMC6D100 series, but is
+The driver currently only supports the monitoring of the voltages,
+temperatures and fan speeds. Limits can be changed. Alarms are not
+supported, and neither is fan speed control.
+Known Systems With EMC6W201
+The EMC6W201 is a rare device, only found on a few systems, made in
+2005 and 2006. Known systems with this device:
+* Dell Precision 670 workstation
+* Gigabyte 2CEWH mainboard
