That would be great, thanks.

I realise now that my first mail was somewhat hasty, and in fact my setup is
(was) so unusual that it probably doesn't justify keeping reset=1. I imagine
most people who set Q-Fan up in their BIOS would want its fan control to
remain after booting, and those people who want to use software-based fan
control would simply disable Q-Fan altogether! Furthermore if the controller
can be switched from one mode to another at run-time, resetting it would
become unnecessary (or rather, subsumed by the mode switching), wouldn't it?

Regards,

Stephen
