True.

But we still need to add support to sensors-detect. Since I had been
adding extra checks to the MAX1617 (and LM84) detection, I'd expect Xeon
sensors not to be misdetected as these, so adding a basic check for
xeontemp (without the extra knowledge of the value stored in the "unused
regs") with confidence 2 should be sufficent for now.
