It is unfortunately not sufficent, and this is the problem. The W83L950D is
basically an empty box (technically, a set of GPIO pins). What it can do and
how it does it solely depends on what is wired on the pins.

As I understand it, the uGuru is a set of different chips connected to and
controlled through the W83L950D. Without details on how all this works from
Abit, there's nothing we can do.

I admit that the explanations on our New Drivers page are confusing,
especially since we pretend we don't have a datasheet for the W83L950D. I will
update the page, thanks for pointing this out.
