Hi Udo,

I've found a strange bug or what ever in the Module. :)
I'll try to explain it.
If I boot Linux with the module "w83627hf", everything
is ok. But if I load the module with the workaround, like
"modprobe w83627hf reset=1" I get a 23°C higher temperature
of the second sensor.

At boottime:
temp1: 34°C
temp2: 33°C

after modprobe with reset=1
temp1: 34°C
temp2: 56°C (23°C more than it is)

This doesn't change after rmmod w83627hf, modprobe w83627hf.
Only after reboot, the values return to normal.

What could that be?
