I have a laptop (HP 5310m) released around 2010 and there appears to be no support for the fan/temp sensor chipset.

When I run sensors-detect it comes up with an unknown chip with ID 0x4501.

Does anyone know what this chip is?

If so, is there a module driver being written for it?

Any help appreciated,



Output of sensors-detect:

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
