Here you go. Functionally, it looks correct to me, I only have comments
on implementation choices and details.

The 4 LSB of the Super-I/O chip ID (4 LSB of LPC register 0x21) are
subject to change in the future, which is why we mask them out when
checking for device ID.

Strange choice. You store one specific difference between both chips
first, then deduce the chip name again based on this difference. A
saner approach would be to store the chip id (or kind) as a global, and
then in w83627ehf_detect(), use the value to set the number of voltage
inputs as a data structure member. It would be much more flexible that
the current approach. This will also make your job easier when
converting the driver to a platform driver.

You can take a look at the it87 driver, it does exactly this.

Good catch, I had never noticed that this register definition was bogus.

Why define them at all if we don't use them? Unused defines make
preprocessing more expensive.

It could be one of the other W83627 chips (HF and THF), which are not
(and will never be) supported by this driver, so this comment is a bit
misleading. Maybe just "Unsupported chip"?

Broken alignment.

Maybe move the final dot outside of the quotes to avoid unnecessaryt
confusion.

This last paragraph isn't particularly helpful, "test" and "reserved"
really mean the same.
