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.
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*
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.
If you follow the default prompts in sensors-detect, it will produce this
output near the end:
Driver `w83781d' (should be inserted):
* 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):
* 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.
