A follow-up with Ticket #659 (Sensors voltages incorrect GL518)

strange. the only thing I can think is that the CPU change sped up the
i2c clock which caused reads to be unreliable or something.
If so, repeated i2cdumps (for example i2cdump 0 0x50 or i2cdump 0 0x2d)
might show differences or failures.
But not so likely.
You could try upgrading lm_sensors but I don't see anything in the gl518
changelog that would make a difference.
Perhaps there is a bug in setting iterate?

good luck
