Description of problem:
I can't use lm_sensors on a Dell Optiplex GX270, which uses an Intel 82801EB
The i2c-i801 driver (1.6.5) fails to load on ICH5, so no lm_sensors. Any
chance we could get i2c-i801 patched with ICH5 support? The code changes are
very straightforward; it acts exactly like ICH4. Basically, you just need to
add a #define and use it in two or three places (everywhere that ICH4 is used).
The kernel driver i2c-i801 is only version 1.6.5 (rev. 1.2.7). It does not
contain support for Intel 82801EB ICH5, which was added in version 2.8.0 (rev.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: dmesg reports:
i2c-i801.o version 2.6.5 (20020915)
i2c-i801.o: Error: Can't detect I801, function 3!
i2c-i801.o: I801 not detected, module not inserted.
Expected Results: lsmod would show that i2c-i801 loaded properly.
This is about the drivers in the kernel, so I assign to the kernel component.

LLNL is also hitting what appears to be this same problem. This was
reported in IT_53714.
2.6.9 based update is now available for fc2, which should fix this.
