    2424Later evolutions were made and the current state is: 
    2525 
    26 1) Sensors-detect accesses VPD information in the BIOS to identify IBM 
    27    systems. If it finds the VPD structure (which is IBM-proprietary), 
    28    sensors-detect will print a message and exit. This is a temporary 
    29    additional measure, which will be removed as soon as the other 
    30    measures have proven to be efficient. 
    31  
    32 2) The probing command (quick write 0) has been replaced by a different 
     261) The probing command (quick write 0) has been replaced by a different 
    3327   command (read byte) for addresses where eeproms are known to live. 
    3428   This should prevent corruption of 24RF08 eeproms in any system, 
     
    3630   no corruption was ever reported using this tool. 
    3731 
    38 3) The i2c-piix4 module (the bus driver that is used for Intel PIIX4-based 
     322) The i2c-piix4 module (the bus driver that is used for Intel PIIX4-based 
    3933   systems, including IBM Thinkpads) now accesses DMI information 
    4034   in the BIOS to identify the system manufacturer. If the system 
    4135   manufacturer is IBM, i2c-piix4 will print a message and exit. 
    4236   As the 24RF08 is on the PIIX4 SMBus, this prevents access to 
    43    the 24RF08, even if sensors-detect was not used. 
     37   the 24RF08. 
    4438 
    45 4) The sequence of probes in the eeprom module (when loaded with 
     393) The sequence of probes in the eeprom module (when loaded with 
    4640   checksum=1) has been changed so that 24RF08 eeproms will 
    4741   not be corrupted. This *should* prevent corruption of 24RF08
