Now what? Yes it is. works and 2.6.26-rcX with the same config
options and the same userspace does not. What do you think ABI breakage
is? It's not relevant that you feel/know that the lm_sensors userspace
has a bug; it used to work, it's widely installed and the new kernel
side code however conceptually correct breaks those setups.

You don't need to. As said, just make it optional. The attached seems to
be working for me.
