If it works it is fine with me, but please add some documentation so that any
one coming to the code in the future can understand why you aren't using
what the datasheet lists.

Given it would be useful to provide everything you have listed here, I'd
be inclined to add a file in Documentation/hwmon supported by a comment inline
with the code.  If you have any details on date of manufacture of the part you
tested etc or any comments from the manufacturer it would be useful to put
those in as well.
