Refactor ITE SuperI/O detection/access. The new code reduces duplications and paves the way for generic SuperI/O detection. Additional cost: We enter/exit the SuperI/O configuration mode twice. Once for detecting which SuperI/O it is, and once for actually changing the settings. Additional benefit: This has the potential of allowing some sort of primitive laptop detection (by way of checking whether an EC or a simple SuperI/O is present).
I have added a call to a not yet implemented Winbond SuperI/O detection function inside #if 0 to make extension more straighforward.
This affects most SiS chipsets and IT87 SPI translation, so tests in verbose mode would be appreciated. In theory, functionality should be unchanged.
