That module is loaded right now while I'm on rc5,

[root@coyote]# lsmod|grep asus
asus_atk0110 8124 0
hwmon 2552 2 it87,asus_atk0110
[root@coyote hwmon]# lsmod|grep it87
it87 20908 0
hwmon_vid 2780 1 it87
hwmon 2552 2 it87,asus_atk0110

and all seems well. I just went through a make xconfig for about 30 minutes,
looking to see if there was someplace to select that and actually make it
work in place of the it87 module.

I was not able to locate such an option. Now what?

Thanks, Robert.

Cheers, Gene
