Description of problem:
CentOS 5.3 x64 (xen kernel) install on an Asus P5Q motherboard - 'official' lm_sensors won't work with the onboard W83667hg sensors chip. (CentOS guys suggested I report a bug here and there).
yum install lm_sensors (2.10.7) followed by sensors-detect = no sensors found.
Running the latest 'sensors-detect' script from lm-sensors.org detects the chip correctly:
Found `Winbond W83667HG Super IO Sensors' Success!
(address 0x290, driver `w83627ehf')
but lm_sensors service will not start with the standard driver.
Installed kmod-w83627ehf-xen driver from elrepo.org, and lm_sensors service starts correctly.
However 'sensors' output reads only:
Adapter: ISA adapter
'yum erase lm_sensors' followed by a 'make install' of lm_sensors 3.1.1 from lm-sensors.org works fine. 'sensors' output:

But means I am now outside RPM which I don't really want to do...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an Asus P5Q motherboard with 5.3 x64, yum install lm_sensors
2. sensors-detect - no sensors found
3. download and run latest 'sensors-detect' script - finds w83667hg
4. lm_sensors service fails to start
5. install kmod-w83627ehf-xen driver
6. start lm_sensors service
7. 'sensors' output - chip name only, no readings
8. yum erase lm_sensors
9. download and install lm_sensors 3.1.1
10. Fully functional.
Sensors output restricted to name of chip only.
Sensor chip's outputs of fan speeds, temps, and voltages as per later lm_sensors install.
We don't have a hardware to reproduce this issue, thus we don't plan to include it in stable release of RHEL. If you feel that this should be part of the stable release, please contact our support at redhat.com/support
