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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
modprobe i2c-i801

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.
