Hi Jean-Marc,

Your patch looks good to me with a few niggles:

> To:
> LKML <linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org>, "LM Sensors"
> <lm-sensors at lm-sensors.org>

I don't know if it's necessary/recommended to submit directly to LKML in
addition to the lm-sensors list. (Maybe somebody else can comment on that.)

> The goal of this patch is to allow it87.c to handle IT8720 chipset
> like IT8718 in order to retreive voltage, temperatures and fans speed
> from sensors tools.
> Patch also attached.

Good description but the "Patch also attached" is superfluous; your
[PATCH] subject line already says that. I believe these comments are
copied verbatim into the kernel git changelog, so it's important to keep
them succinct.

More importantly, you need to sign your patch with:

Signed-off-by: [your real name] [your email address]

Please make sure your mailer is not wrapping lines, it looks here like
it is.
