I think this needs to be located by what it does (fan control), not what 
interface it has (pmbus).

I'm not all that happy with hwmon either because things here seem to 
just be based on being Linux hwmon devices which is sometimes arbitrary.

You should define the IDs here, not just how many of each type.

Boolean? Please be explicit.

Needs a vendor prefix.

"pmbus" is a property of the controller, not the fan, right? We should 
have compatibles along the lines of the type of fan like 4-wire, 3-wire, 
etc.

In general, I think a good portion of these should be either implied by 
a fan compatible string or be part of a common fan binding.

Is this a feature of the Maxim chip or just a mapping of temperature 
sensors to fans. The latter should be a common property.
