Hello, Guenter!

 GR> never mind; no idea if G7811 ever really existed. I found version 1.3
 GR> of the datasheet which describes both G781 and G781-1. Can you test the
 GR> driver and sensors-detect if I send you a pointer to the code ?

It seems that this patch is ok, except for one thing.

Let me explain what I did. I added support for ACPI SMBus connected to 
Embedded Controller to the lm-sensors (for a netbook without proper ACPI 
support). There are two G781 sensors connected to this bus, one to the 
address 0x4C and one to the 0x4D. Both sensors have 0x01 as device id. But 
patch assumes that only G781-1 can be connected to the 0x4D address.

Thanks for the fast answer! :)
