Do you have any hardware sensors monitoring software running (such as
the GNOME sensors panel applet or something?) Something like that would
be the most likely cause for something to access the smbus driver.

Interesting that the device seems to be on the same interrupt but it
hasn't registered itself as a handler (it looks like that driver doesn't
use interrupts). If the device did generate an interrupt though, it
would indeed cause this problem.
