The ASB100 chip (unlike others supported by w83781d module) requires a
working I2C bus driver.  The w83781d module will not even detect your ASB100
without it.  (Ticket answerers please keep this in mind.)

Asus website says you have "Intel® 82801DA ICH4" chipset.  I'm not sure
if release 2.7.0 supports this.  Anyone else know?

Right, the above are ISA probes, not I2C.

Make sure that you completely remove the sensors RPM before you try to 
install one from source.  If that breaks dependencies... ignore them
(you'll be replacing what's needed anyway).
