You're welcome.

After reading the code once again, it's "normal". The code expects the
force parameter to be passed in order to accept "generic" (i.e.
non-National, non-Analog) LM85-like chips.

Philip, why is that? Looks like this should be changed (by at least
accepting SMSC chips without force parameters).
