    With respect to sensors the conversation has already been had, and I fix
    is already queued and should come out in the sensors release due out in
    a week or so. So sensors should be fixed before this code is merged
    into Linus's kernel.

    Now why something minor like sensors that nothing seems to depend
    strongly on should stop a system from booting is a huge question.

    So I am going to have the conversation to triage what is up with
    systemd. That seems totally unexpected.
