+Kernel driver ltc4151
+Supported chips:
+ * Linear Technology LTC4151
+ Prefix: 'ltc4151'
+ Addresses scanned: -
+ Datasheet:
+ http://www.linear.com/docs/Datasheet/4151fc.pdf
+Author: Per Dalen <per.dalen@appeartv.com>
+The LTC4151 is a High Voltage I2C Current and Voltage Monitor.
+Usage Notes
+This driver does not probe for LTC4151 devices, since there is no register
+which can be safely used to identify the chip. You will have to instantiate
+the devices explicitly.
+Example: the following will load the driver for an LTC4151 at address 0x6f
+on I2C bus #0:
+# modprobe ltc4151
+# echo ltc4151 0x6f > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-0/new_device
+Sysfs entries
+Voltage readings provided by this driver are reported as obtained from the ADIN
+and VIN registers.
+Current reading provided by this driver is reported as obtained from the Current
+Sense register. The reported value assumes that a 1 mOhm sense resistor is
+in1_input VDIN voltage (mV)
+in2_input ADIN voltage (mV)
+curr1_input SENSE current (mA)
