    3030   3: Forcibly enable all voltage and temperature channels, including in9

     32Note that this parameter has no effect for the PC87360, PC87363 and PC87364 
     33chips. 
     34 
     35Also note that for the PC87366, initialization levels 2 and 3 don't enable 
     36all temperature channels, because some of them share pins with each other, 
     37so they can't be used at the same time.

     127Note that these three additional channels share their pins with the 
     128external thermal diode channels, so you (physically) can't use them all at 
     129the same time. Although it should be possible to mix the two sensor types, 
     130the documents from National Semiconductor suggest that motherboard 
     131manufacturers should choose one type and stick to it. So you will more 
     132likely have either channels 1 to 3 (thermal diodes) or 3 to 6 (internal 
     133thermal diode, and thermistors).
