get the hex PCI ID with 'lspci -n'.
Add it to the supported[] array at the top of i2c-i801.c.
Compile and load the module.
Check dmesg for clues of success or failure.
Then try prog/detect/i2cdetect to look for devices,
and prog/dump/i2cdump to look at registers of those devices.
If all looks good, run sensors-detect.
Let us know how it works.
