Updated list:

Recently converted:
adm1021.c (Krzysztof Helt)
lm78.c (Jean Delvare)
lm85.c (Jean Delvare)
lm87.c (Jean Delvare)
thmc50.c (Krzysztof Helt)
w83791d.c (Charles Spirakis)
w83792d.c (Gong Jun)

Superseded by a newer driver:
fscher.c
fscpos.c

Still need to be converted:
adm1025.c
adm1026.c
adm1031.c
adm9240.c
asb100.c
gl518sm.c
gl520sm.c
it87.c
lm77.c
lm80.c
lm92.c
max1619.c
pc87360.c
sis5595.c (Ivo Manco volunteered)
smsc47m1.c
via686a.c
vt8231.c
w83627hf.c (Carlos Olalla Martínez volunteered)
w83781d.c

The list is shorter, thanks to everyone who helped so far. More help
would of course be appreciated, as we are about to release lm-sensors
3.0.0 and it needs these individual alarm files. I will try to convert
some more drivers this afternoon, next on my list is w83781d.

Thanks,
