The following patches add support for the hardware monitors used on
Solarflare NIC reference designs.

The NatSemi LM87 is already well supported as a PC hardware monitor but the
lm87 driver requires the BIOS to initialise it.

The Maxim MAX6647 is not supported by any existing driver.

These add platform data structures and polling functions for these
drivers, which no other hwmon drivers currently have.  It may be that
there should be a generic API for in-kernel hwmon polling.
