BTW, everyone with a Super-I/O chip is invited to test that he/she can
now dump its logical devices by using the new -k option of isadump.

The reason why I added this is that I noticed that Winbond Super-I/O
chips will lock themselves out after an arbitrary number of registers
have been read. So unlocking the chip with isaset and then dumping it
with isadump would only show the first dozen registers, and then 0xff
everywhere.

Now that we can pass the key to isadump itself, it will repeat it after
every row, so we should be able to dump the chip contents up to the last
register.

Thanks,
