Unknown kernel module??? help

Hi guys

I was just looking through Harddrake at my system info and noticed something strange.

For the following Chips on an ASUS P5A mobo

M5229 IDE

I have the following message..

Kernel Module : unknown

and for this chip..

M7101 I have this message..

Kernel Module : unknown
Informations: This device hasn't been identified by HardDrake, please send `/proc/bus/*' files and this device ID `10b97101' to:

but the following modules have been correctly identified...

M5237 USB
M1533 PCI to ISA Bridge [Aladdin IV]

My question is this, the chips without modules, is there something that needs to be done about it, and I cant find the /proc/bus/* files that the above message is on about, does anyone know where they are?

Cheers guys

first things... if it ain't broke... ect.

if nothing seems to malfunctioning, then i wouldn't worry about it too much. offhand tho, do you know what the chips do? if it's just stuff to handle the usb port, then you definitely don't need to worry about them.
