Description of problem:
This applies to all kernel versions since w83781d was brought in from the
The subclients of w83781d are never registered with i2c_attach_client(). But,
w83781d_detach_client() tries to i2c_detach_client() them anyway. This was
harmless, until i2c-core was "listified"... because the old array method
silently ignored the attempt to detach a non-existent client.
The latest lm_sensors CVS of w83781d has the necessary i2c_attach_client() calls
- not sure why they were removed during conversion to 2.5.x. Do we intend to
attach these subclients or not?
