No fan values with W83637HF

Hello,

I'd like to thank you for the good work being done. But that's not the
main subject of this mail.

The mail subject is the (light) issue I have with W83637HF
sensors. Everything seems to be running fine but I have no value for
the fans. The fans (box and CPU) are correctly identified in the BIOS.

----------------

Here's what I get running the sensors command (everything was
configured by sensors-detect)

-------------------

I run the kernel linux 2.6.8-1-686-smp as shipped by Debian, along
with sensors version 2.8.8 with libsensors version 2.8.8, as shipped
by Debian (sarge) too.

Any clues ? On another computer, with different hardware but working
with lm-sensors (it87), I notice that fan speed is shown only when it
reach some value; and I read stuff related to that in the docs. I
tried to do some checks about that running the CPU at 100% for a while
(I guess the box fan speed increased since the box temperature was
going down (5°C decrease) while the CPU temperature was increasing) 
but I'm not sure the test was really conclusive since I was not able
to make the CPU getting hotier than 57°C.
I also search on the web and found mails about the w83637hf support in
lm-sensors, derived from w83627 stuff: in these mails, apparently,
people were getting (more or less) accurate values for their fans
sensors.

Is there any other information I can provide? Is there anything I
should try? Or is it a known problem (I did not found relevant
information in
<http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/lm_sensors2/doc/chips/w83627hf>
neither in
<http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/lm_sensors2/doc/chips/w83781d>)


Thanks,
Regards,
