Then I should rename the files to nct6776 and change the name to 
"NUVOTON NCT6776 Super I/O", but add a comment in the file that this is 
for the NCT6776D and NCT6776F parts? Haven't seen any devices with 
another suffix, but I'd say that it would be better to add some kind of 
note to prevent possible confusion in the future.
