Hi Jean:
  Since you don't have any motherboard with 793 on it, send us any
patches you would like to test. Also, we are looking for CHEAP 793
motherboard (less than RMB 1500 = 1500 / 8 = USD 200), if you know of
any, please let us know.

  We will ship one motherboard with 627DHG to David soon.

To JGong:
  Please read this the attached email from Jean and do the testing on
our 793 platform and report result (right or wrong) to Jean, Rudolf and
lm-sensors mailing list and CC me. I would like to know if 793 driver in
the Linux kernel tree does work on Winbond 793.

Best regards,

Thanks for your proposal. It took me so much time to review the driver
that was provided by Winbond that I didn't dare asking you for more
help afterwards. It's not too late though. The w83793 driver is in
Linus' tree already, but kernel 2.6.20 is still in -rc stage. Feel free
to test the driver in 2.6.20-rc1 or later, with lm_sensors 2.10.1 or
later, and report to us if anything doesn't work as expected. We can
send bugfixes to Linus at any time.
