Right; otherwise the standalone i2c modules would need to conflict
with the kernel, which would be poor. :-) The discrepancy between
"2.4.18" and "2.4.18-686" does appear problematic; did you correctly
specify "--append-to-version 686" to make-kpkg?
It'd also be useful to know what version of i2c-source and
lm-sensors-source you have. I'm pretty sure unstable and testing have
the same version which should work to build modules against the
official kernel source, though.

Why do you think this?
