Hi All,

As discussed on the lm-sensors list, using the fixed scaling factors from the
fscpos datasheet for the fscher and newer models as wel, was nood a good idea,
as the actual scaling factors may be different and can be read from OEM DMI
entries.

This patch changes the behaviour of the merged FSC familiy fschmd driver to be
the same as the old standalone fscher driver for fscher and newer models,
leaving the scaling to userspace.

This also preserves compatibility of existing sensors.conf files.

Jean, can you review this please?
Mark, can you send this to Linus for 2.6.24 please, otherwise we will have one 
official kernel release with different scaling for the voltage inputs of the 
fschmd compared to the next releases.


And yes I tested my patch this time.

Thanks & Regards,

Hans
