Re; Fixing the lm-sensors/i2c mess

Maybe the best actual solution is to repackage lm-sensors 2.6.5,

least the world won't end the way it does now.

Nope, nope, this is no good, because it breaks *forward*-compatibility with kernel 2.6. And it would slow things down terribly to force yet *another* recompilation -- only to have to migrate back to libsensors2 after sarge. :-P

See the later messages in the thread; probably the best solution is just to document the problems, close the bugs, and deal with it. :-P
