not publicly available, but seems to be similar to the AMD-8111 SMBus 2.0 adapter.

i2c-nforce2 is a driver for the SMBuses included in the nVidia nForce2 MCP.
lspci -v listing shows something like the following:
00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0064 (rev a2) Subsystem: Asustek Computer, Inc.: Unknown device 0c11 Flags: 66Mhz, fast devsel, IRQ 5 I/O ports at c000 [size=32] Capabilities: <available only to root>
then this driver should support the SMBuses of your motherboard.
The SMBus adapter in the nForce2 chipset seems to be very similar to the SMBus 2.0 adapter in the AMD-8111 south bridge. However, I could only get the driver to work with direct I/O access, which is different to the EC interface of the AMD-8111. Tested on Asus A7N8X. The ACPI DSDT table of the Asus A7N8X lists two SMBuses, both of which are supported by this driver.
