    2626See doc/chips/w83781d for more information.

     28Also, many as99127f chips are misidentified as w83781d or w83782d chips. 
     29If so, you can fix this by forcing the driver: 
     30modprobe w83781d force_as99127f=BUS,0x2d where BUS is your bus number 
     31(cat /proc/bus/i2c to identify your bus number).

    2933================================ 
     
    5761sis5595 (sis5595 and i2c-sis5595 drivers) 
    5862 
    59 Writing the base addresses (using the force_addr=0x.... parameter to modprobe) 
    60 does not work for some machines (dmesg message is "force address failed"). 
     63These drivers latch on to many non-sis5595 chips which 
     64do not support sensors, i2c bus, or both. 
     65This is because SiS uses the same PCI ID for several different chips. 
     66This will have to be fixed by us to recognize these other chips. 
     67 
     68Right now, the driver tries 
     69writing the base addresses (using the force_addr=0x.... parameter to modprobe), 
     70it does not work for some machines (dmesg message is "force address failed"). 
    6171Either some chips do not support sensors, or there is some undocumented 
    6272lock bit for the base address registers.
