This is really good news! It is very great that you managed to have this
chip fit in the common model the other drivers follow for voltage
computations. This will make your code much easier to integrate and
it'll also make things easier for long-time lm_sensors users which
happen to have a W83792D on their new hardware - things will work the
same way they were used to!

Thanks a lot,
Jean Delvare
