did you check it they get loaded by the initramfs?
please tell which fan and i2c modules need to be added for ppc?
we currently do in scripts/init-premount/thermal
case "$DPKG_ARCH" in
# load the right modules
modprobe -q i2c-keywest
modprobe -q therm_pm72

afaik ubuntu has those modular too,
please check if loading them real early helps!?
non-modular may need db-measurement arg :)
