Description
-----------

This driver implements support for the Maxim MAX1668, MAX1805 and MAX1989
chips.

The three devices are very similar, but the MAX1805 has a reduced feature
set; only two remote temperature inputs vs the four avaible on the other
two ICs.

The driver is able to distinguish between the devices and creates sysfs
entries as follows:

MAX1805, MAX1668 and MAX1989:

temp1_input     ro local (ambient) temperature
temp1_max       rw local temperature maximum threshold for alarm
temp1_max_alarm ro local temperature maximum threshold alarm
temp1_min       rw local temperature minimum threshold for alarm
temp1_min_alarm ro local temperature minimum threshold alarm
temp2_input     ro remote temperature 1
temp2_max       rw remote temperature 1 maximum threshold for alarm
temp2_max_alarm ro remote temperature 1 maximum threshold alarm
temp2_min       rw remote temperature 1 minimum threshold for alarm
temp2_min_alarm ro remote temperature 1 minimum threshold alarm
temp3_input     ro remote temperature 2
temp3_max       rw remote temperature 2 maximum threshold for alarm
temp3_max_alarm ro remote temperature 2 maximum threshold alarm
temp3_min       rw remote temperature 2 minimum threshold for alarm
temp3_min_alarm ro remote temperature 2 minimum threshold alarm

MAX1668 and MAX1989 only:
temp4_input     ro remote temperature 3
temp4_max       rw remote temperature 3 maximum threshold for alarm
temp4_max_alarm ro remote temperature 3 maximum threshold alarm
temp4_min       rw remote temperature 3 minimum threshold for alarm
temp4_min_alarm ro remote temperature 3 minimum threshold alarm
temp5_input     ro remote temperature 4
temp5_max       rw remote temperature 4 maximum threshold for alarm
temp5_max_alarm ro remote temperature 4 maximum threshold alarm
temp5_min       rw remote temperature 4 minimum threshold for alarm
temp5_min_alarm ro remote temperature 4 minimum threshold alarm

Module Parameters
-----------------

* read_only: int
  Set to non-zero if you wish to prevent write access to alarm thresholds.
