From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686; Nav)

via686a module is missing from the RPM. Source RPM is of v2.5.0, regular
RPM is of v2.5.2, so compilation from source RPM proceeds but module
insertion fails due to non-matching symbols.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lm_sensors-2.5.2-3 and lm_sensors-devel-2.5.2-3
2.  ls /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/*via*
(part 2)
How it was discovered:
/usr/sbin/sensors-detect on an Asus A7V motherboard.  
followed by  modprobe via686a

Actual Results:  The module didn't appear in the listing. 
(part 2)
If you follow the default prompts in sensors-detect, it will produce this
output near the end:
Driver `w83781d' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * Bus `SMBus vt82c596 adapter at e800' (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
    Busdriver `i2c-viapro', I2C address 0x2d (and 0x48 0x49)
    Chip `Asus AS99127F' (confidence: 8)

Driver `via686a' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * ISA bus, undetermined address (Busdriver `i2c-isa')
    Chip `VIA Technologies VT 82C686 Integrated Sensors' (confidence: 9)

After the sensors-detect script exitted, modprobe via686a returned:
modprobe: Can't locate module via686a

Expected Results:  The module should have been found and loaded

Fixed in the new 2.4 kernel RPM release.
