Okay -- I grabbed the code from SVN, compiled it and ran it on a few
computers, but I didn't get any useful output (verbose mode was also
pretty sparse).  I assume that this means that my Super I/O chips are
not supported, correct?

I did some digging online, but I wasn't very successful in finding
datasheets for Super I/Os.  If someone could point me in the right
direction, I could take a few datasheets and covert them into the
appropriate tables.  Although it would be nifty to add support for
whatever chips are on my motherboards, I'm happy to work on whatever
Super I/Os datasheets are available right now.
