Not so time-consuming for an unemployed guy like me. A few questions,
though. I am not sure how I am supposed to use the constants NANA, RSVD
and MISC, as defined in superiotool.h. I marked the default for global
CR 07 and 21 as NANA, but 07 is logical device number and msd of 21 is
supposedly always 1 and lsd is chip revision id, on my HF it is 7. For
24 the datasheet says "Default 0b1s000s0s", a notation I'm unfamiliar
with, so I set the default to MISC. This is very likely the wrong way
to do it. Also, a few registers are specified as "reserved" or
"Test:Reserver for winbond", but they provide a default, so I entered
that default.

Also, I only grabbed the W83627HF/F datasheet, I think there was a HG/G
sheet available too.
