pwmconfig

Hi all,

I gave a try to pwmconfig and there are two bugs I'd like to report:

1* The script hangs if the config file does not exist. It creates the
file /etc/fancontrol, and hangs right after, with the message "Loading
configuration from  ..." (it should display the file name, that is,
/etc/fancontrol, there). Patch attached, I'll commit it unless someone
objects.

2* After running pwmconfig, the temperatures reported by sensors are all
wrong (and not by a few degrees).

Before:
M/B Temp:    +31°C  (limit =  +42°C, hysteresis =  +40°C)
CPU Temp:  +51.4°C  (limit =  +60°C, hysteresis =  +56°C)
P/S Temp:  +31.4°C  (limit =  +42°C, hysteresis =  +40°C)

After:
M/B Temp:    -45°C  (limit =  +42°C, hysteresis =  +40°C)
CPU Temp: +217.4°C  (limit =  +60°C, hysteresis =  +56°C)
P/S Temp: +211.4°C  (limit =  +42°C, hysteresis =  +40°C)

Weird, isn't it? Running 'sensors -s' doesn't make them back to normal,
I have to reboot in order to do so.

My sensor chip is an a99127f.

Additionally, pwmconfig does not work for me, but maybe that's just my
system not supporting it.
