Speaking as someone who uses lm-sensors, and not as a d-d, how about 2.7.0
instead of 2.6.5?  i2c 2.7.0 and lm-sensors 2.7.0 are the last to apply
semi-sanely to a relatively mainline 2.4.x kernel.

lm-sensors 2.7.0 doesn't build with gcc 3.x, of course.  Since I use gcc
2.95 for all kernel-related things, it's not been an issue for *me*, but
you don't want to have to do that in Sarge.
