+Kernel driver lineage-pem
+Supported devices:
+ * Lineage Compact Power Line Power Entry Modules
+ Prefix: 'lineage-pem'
+ Addresses scanned: -
+ Documentation:
+ http://www.lineagepower.com/oem/pdf/CPLI2C.pdf
+Author: Guenter Roeck <guenter.roeck@ericsson.com>
+This driver supports various Lineage Compact Power Line DC/DC and AC/DC
+converters such as CP1800, CP2000AC, CP2000DC, CP2100DC, and others.
+Lineage CPL power entry modules are nominally PMBus compliant. However, most
+standard PMBus commands are not supported. Specifically, all hardware monitoring
+and status reporting commands are non-standard. For this reason, a standard
+PMBus driver can not be used.
+Usage Notes
+This driver does not probe for Lineage CPL devices, since there is no register
+which can be safely used to identify the chip. You will have to instantiate
+the devices explicitly.
+Example: the following will load the driver for a Lineage PEM at address 0x40
+on I2C bus #1:
+$ modprobe lineage-pem
+$ echo lineage-pem 0x40 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
+All Lineage CPL power entry modules have a built-in I2C bus master selector
+(PCA9541). To ensure device access, this driver should only be used as client
+driver to the pca9541 I2C master selector driver.
+Sysfs entries
+All Lineage CPL devices report output voltage and device temperature as well as
+alarms for output voltage, temperature, input voltage, input current, input power,
+and fan status.
+Input voltage, input current, input power, and fan speed measurement is only
+supported on newer devices. The driver detects if those attributes are supported,
+and only creates respective sysfs entries if they are.
+in1_input Output voltage (mV)
+in1_min_alarm Output undervoltage alarm
+in1_max_alarm Output overvoltage alarm
+in1_crit Output voltage critical alarm
