Bug#597820: linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64: 2.6.32 doesn't support the f71889fg sensor chip
I installed a fresh squeeze on a new PC with a MSI P55M-GD45 motherboard
that uses a f71889fg sensor chip. Unfortunately, while lm-sensors'
sensor-detect is able to find the chip and suggest a kernel module, the
module doesn't load because it lacks support for the chip.
The support was added somewhen between 2.6.32 and 2.6.33, and was added
by commit 7669896f. I hear that you add support for hardware when the
backport is simple, this one is pretty trivial.
For other reasons, I already switched to 2.6.35 on that machine, so it's
not a problem for me anymore, but the motherboard is already quite old, so
other people may have similar problems with a fresh squeeze.
