Hi Jean

I added three lines, please refer to the codes below, Am I right?

static int
w83792d_detach_client(struct i2c_client *client)
        int err;
        struct w83792d_data *data = i2c_get_clientdata(client);

        if ((err = i2c_detach_client(client))) {
                .../* some codes omitted here! */

        if (i2c_get_clientdata(client)==NULL) {
                /* subclients */
                i2c_detach_client(&(data->lm75[0])); <-- added!
                i2c_detach_client(&(data->lm75[1])); <-- added!
                kfree(data->lm75);                   <-- added!
        } else {
                /* main client */
        return 0;

I meet a problem when load the 792 module after the modification to
W83792d 0-002f: Subclient 1 registration at address 0x48 failed.

The 792 modules does not work, does it have something to do with your
item 6*?
Do you know how to solve this problem?

Best Regards
