Thanks for clarifying that. Still new at all this stuff really... :)
Well, based on the git version of hwmon-vid.c the fact that
/sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/device/vrm is originally 110 on my system
would seem to indicate then that the hwmon-vid driver is correctly
setting the VRM version based on my Conroe CPU to 110. Is there any
way to interrogate the hwmon-vid driver to see whether it is working
at a lower level before the it87 driver reads it in?
Perhaps the elrepo.org kmod-it87 driver that I am using needs to be
updated with more recent code to support the different VID
configuration of the 8718 and 8720 chips...
