I have no particular problem with this for new drivers, but
obviously it is an interface change for older ones that may
cause some issues. Anyone else care either way?

Various patches to at least kill off missleading config symbol
names (SENSOR_ which is used hwmon) have been kicking around but
I admit I keep putting them on the back burner on the basis there
are better things to be getting on with and it will cause a fair bit
of churn.
