    I got an advisory about w83627hf in my logs, but not from the rc4
    reboot. The previous ones were:
    Feb 13 00:31:18 coyote kernel: Driver 'w83627hf' needs updating - please
    use bus_type methods
    Feb 13 00:36:20 coyote kernel: Driver 'w83627hf' needs updating - please
    use bus_type methods

    Two quick reboots there, the first one would have been rc2, I forgot to
    update grub.conf :(

    which would have been booted to rc2 and 3, not rc4. I believe they
    started at rc1 but I won't swear to that. gkrellm and sensors are both
    working albeit sensors is saying C for the diode in the cpu when it
    should be F

    gkrellm-2.28 is displaying it correctly though.

    So apparently something has been updated with rc4?
