[lm-sensors] [PATCH v2] hwmon: (max1111) change sysfs interface to in[0-3]_input in millivolts

This patch fixed the inconsistent max1111 sysfs interface as pointed
out by Jean Delvare:

    It was pointed to me that the max1111 driver doesn't implement the
    standard sysfs interface for hwmon drivers (as described in
    Documentation/hwmon/sysfs-interface). It exports files adc[0-3]_in,
    aren't part of the standard interface. Presumably these should be
    renamed to in[0-3]_input. Renaming them is probably not sufficient
    though, as I see no scaling done in the driver. As the MAX1111 chip has
    a documented full scale of 2.048V, I take it that the LSB of the ADC
    has a weight of 8 mV. Exporting raw register values to user-space is
    not OK.
