Thanks to bugreport 216655 on bugzilla, the contents of the
fan/thermal sensor buffers could be almost completely decoded.
It was also found out that newer Dell notebooks support a new
DDV WMI interface version, which just adds a additional method.

The first patch adds support for this new DDV WMI interface version,
while the second patch simplifies error handling then dealing with
empty buffers. The fourth patch adds a module param useful for testing
the driver on hardware exposing an unsupported DDV WMI interface
version. The last patch finally adds support for exposing the sensor
values over a standard hwmon interface.

The patch series was tested on a Dell Inspiron 3505, with the hwmon
patch being tested by multiple people over bugzilla and email. Those
who tested the final version of the hwmon patch are credited with
Tested-by tags.
