One option is badly named. "none" implies off, it would be better as "bios", or "default".
Please fix before it's in kernel and can't be changed
Hey, I understand your complain but not matter what name I find, they are all confusing in some way. In the case of "bios" or "default", it doesn't express that you leave it in this state.

Anyway, it shouldn't matter as this name is internal only. The user has to use the sysfs interface which uses numbers (as specified in the hwmon interface http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...-interface#250).
