Subject: Re: [PATCH 3/3] hwmon: (asus_wmi_sensors) Support access via Asus WMI.

Hello,

When I first wrote the EC sensor driver, I thought there were only a
few sensor configurations, but it turned out the assumption was wrong
and even with currently supported 6 boards the sensor to board mapping
is already hardly readable. Thus I redone that part in a declarative
way so that the sensor list for each board is condensed and is easy to
digest [1]. Please consider updating the submitted patches.

Best regards,
Eugene
