[lm-sensors] Motherboard-specific configurations (sensors4mobo)

>>> We were thinking about using the following:
I have cobbled together new versions of the sensors4mobo tools that only
use those six parameters. The web server now does a very basic check for
six parameters and the table marks the broken ones (loads more work &
sanity checking to be done here). One valid file so far, and I will see
about updating the rest when I have the time.
I have also added a "tags" field in which you can add a fixed set of
tags to describe the file: so far I have thought of "broken",
"experimental" and "beta". Perhaps this goes some way towards emulating
your "unsure" database flag, Ivo? I went for the name "tags" rather than
"status" so that other info could be added with minimal api changes.
This is more for my sensors overlay work, so feel free to disregard it
if it doesn't fit your goals.
Can anyone point me towards a description of the "dynamic chips support"
for libsensors that Jean mentioned. (Sorry, my googling failed on this).
For motherboard specific sensors.conf files, would it make sense to use
the same fan labels that are used in the manual and on the motherboard
itself? (What is the offical naming policy? - grepping sensors.conf
shows a range of names)
