+Module Parameters
+* vref: int
+  Default: 1250 (mV)
+  Reference voltage on VREF_ADC pin in mV. It should not be necessary to set
+  this parameter unless a non-default reference voltage is used.
+[From datasheet] The SMM665 is an Active DC Output power supply Controller
+that monitors, margins and cascade sequences power. The part monitors six
+power supply channels as well as VDD, 12V input, two general-purpose analog
+inputs and an internal temperature sensor using a 10-bit ADC.
+Each monitored channel has its own high and low limits, plus a critical
+Support for SMM465, SMM764, and SMM766 has been implemented but is untested.
+Usage Notes
+This driver does not probe for devices, since there is no register which
+can be safely used to identify the chip. You will have to instantiate
+the devices explicitly. When instantiating the device, you have to specify
+its configuration register address.
+Example: the following will load the driver for an SMM665 at address 0x57
+on I2C bus #1:
+$ modprobe smm665
+$ echo smm665 0x57 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
+Sysfs entries
+This driver uses the values in the datasheet to convert ADC register values
+into the values specified in the sysfs-interface document. All attributes are
+read only.
+Min, max, lcrit, and crit values are used by the chip to trigger external signals
+and/or other activity. Triggered signals can include HEALTHY, RST, Power Off,
+or Fault depending on the chip configuration. The driver reports values as lcrit
+or crit if exceeding the limits triggers RST, Power Off, or Fault, and as min or
+max otherwise. For details please see the SMM665 datasheet.
+For SMM465 and SMM764, values for Channel E and F are reported but undefined.
