2.6.39, why not. Stable, don't ask me, I have never been keen on the
"support for new devices doesn't have to follow the stability rules"
policy, but apparently I am in the minority.

In this specific case, please keep in mind that people can easily
instantiate I2C devices from user-space now, and the chip you are adding
support for is 100% compatible with one we already support, so a
workaround already exists in the absence of official support.

Please follow your own brand new hwmon patch submission guide and
update Documentation/hwmon/lm90 as well. SCNR :)

As a side note, I find it weird that On Semi uses the same chip name
prefix (NCT) has Nuvoton...

This source file includes a list of supported chips in its header
comment. The "Addresses to scan" comment also lists which chips can
live at which address. Please update both sections.

It might make sense to drop the big header comment in the future, and
redirect the reader to the documentation file, after ensuring that it
contains all the required information. This would avoid having to
update two different lists which are essentially redundant with each
new chip we add support for.

Other than this, these changes look good and I'll be happy to pick the
patch in my tree when it's ready.
