This is v3 of my effort to add i2c support to the nct6775 hwmon

Changes since v2 [0]:
- Renamed drivers and Kconfig symbols to keep existing platform
driver as "nct6775" (SENSORS_NCT6775) and the core module as
"nct6775-core" (SENSORS_NCT6775_CORE) [Guenter]

Unfortunately while this was a simple enough change to make (a few 'git mv' commands and a handful of actual text changes), it ballooned the size of the diff for patch 5 to the point that vger bounced it for exceeding the 100K message-size limit. As far as I can tell it looks like it went through elsewhere, but does leave a bit of a gap in the public list archives -- please let me know if there's anything I should try in terms of re-sending it. (The only combination of 'git format-patch' flags I've been able to find that gets it back down to approximately its previous size is '-B -D', which isn't so useful for actually applying.)

I'm not sure how critical a limit that 100K is, or if it's something we might consider raising a bit?
