Not supported by superiotool, however if there was any output at all,
we'd like to know it. That alone would probably help us identify the
Super I/O, and from there, adding support is rather easy.

I can send dozens of ITE data sheets (even for now unavailable chips)
your way.

What's the vendor of your Super I/O?
