thanks for the contribution.
i've tested your driver, have the following suggestions:
- make ALL_SENSORS the default, or even better remove all the #ifdef stuff
- remove normal_xxx_range defines which cause compile warnings
- remove uch_config initialization in vt1211_init_client (trust the BIOS initialization instead,
or use setting in sensors.conf)
I've checked in a fix in libsensors so that uch_config can be set by sensors -s.
If you can make these changes, and submit the patch to our mailing list,
with comments and a signed-of-by line, we can get it fed upstream.
