+Module Parameters
+-----------------
+
+* bus_speed (unsigned int)
+Allows changing of the bus speed. Normally, the bus speed is set by the BIOS
+and never needs to be changed. However, some SMBus analyzers are too slow for
+monitoring the bus during debug, thus the need for this module parameter.
+Specify the bus speed in kHz.
+Available bus frequency settings:
+ 0 no change
+ 80 kHz
+ 100 kHz
+ 400 kHz
+ 1000 kHz

+Description
+-----------
+
+The S12xx series of SOCs have a pair of integrated SMBus 2.0 controllers
+targeted primarily at the microserver and storage markets.
+
+The S12xx series contain a pair of PCI functions. An output of lspci will show
+something similar to the following:
+
+ 00:13.0 System peripheral: Intel Corporation Centerton SMBus 2.0 Controller 0
+ 00:13.1 System peripheral: Intel Corporation Centerton SMBus 2.0 Controller 1
