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?

Cheers, Gene
