That why I choose NCT6776D and not NCT6776 as name.
NCT6776D and NCT6776F have a common datasheet and the only difference I
could spot was the package. But the manufacturer might release a chip
with a different suffix and slightly different functionality, which
would probably break stuff, when I call the chip just NCT6776.
Also the suffix is part of the name.
I think I keep NCT6776D as name and change the chip description to
CHIP_NAME("NUVOTON NCT6776D/F Super I/O")
Seems to be the best solution to me.
