w1: DS2423 counter driver and documentation
This is a 1-wire/w1 DS2423 slave driver for reading the values from all 4 counters available DS2423 devices by using standard w1_slave file. In ds2423 the counters are tied to ram pages 12-15 in and each of those ram-pages. Each of these counter values (and asoociated ram page values) are represented as a own line in w1_slave file. Driver has been tested on mips and x86. usage example: cat /sys/bus/w1/devices/1d-00000009b964/w1_slave 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 6d 38 00 ff ff 00 00 fe ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff crc=YES c=2 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 1f 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff crc=YES c=2 00 5a 0e 5f 18 00 00 00 00 0b 28 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff 00 00 ff ff crc=YES c=408882778 00 05 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 8d 39 ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff crc=YES c=5 Patch includes also the documentation.

+Kernel driver w1_ds2423
+=======================
+
+Supported chips:
+ * Maxim DS2423 based counter devices.
+
+supported family codes:
+ W1_THERM_DS2423 0x1D
+
+Author: Mika Laitio <lamikr@pilppa.org>
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+Support is provided through the sysfs w1_slave file. Each opening and
+read sequence of w1_slave file initiates the read of counters and ram
+available in DS2423 pages 12 - 15.
+
+Result of each page is provided as an ASCII output where each counter
+value and associated ram buffer is outpputed to own line.
+
+Each lines will contain the values of 42 bytes read from the counter and
+memory page along the crc=YES or NO for indicating whether the read operation
+was successfull and CRC matched.
+If the operation was successfull, there is also in the end of each line
+a counter value expressed as an integer after c=
+
+Meaning of 42 bytes represented is following:
+ - 1 byte from ram page
+ - 4 bytes for the counter value
+ - 4 zero bytes
+ - 2 bytes for crc16 which was calculated from the data read since the previous crc bytes
+ - 31 remaining bytes from the ram page
+ - crc=YES/NO indicating whether read was ok and crc matched
+ - c=<int> current counter value
+
+example from the successfull read:
