I wrote a small manpage some time ago (more of a dummy kind), but haven't
committed it yet because it's not that useful...

The meanings of ctr, pcr, wdp and cdp are unknown. takawata@, who wrote
the driver, got his information solely from the DSDT of the BIOS.  So,
he doesn't know the meaning either :-)
