Custom hardware...

;)  Not likely, its a reference/demo 'board' (err, ^h^h System) for our
chips.  The HW folks sprinkled the '53s across the back, so I have 4
fans connected to 5 chips.  Only one of the '53s remote sensor is
connected, the rest are 'ambient' temp.

I'll see what I can do, I didn't build most of the utils as I didn't
want to fight with the cross-compiler, etc.

As a side note, the attached driver does work with the '63 also (should
be the same for the '64 too)

No, sir, Thank You!  The drivers in the sensors and i2c packages have
been a HUGE time saver for me!
